METHOD

Preheat oven to 200C. Toss cauliflower florets with one tablespoon olive oil and turmeric (use gloves or a spoon to avoid coloured hands!) then toss sweet potato with olive oil and place both on a baking tray.

Season with sea salt and place in oven to cook for 40 minutes. Once veggies are cooked, arrange ingredients into bowls starting with a base of baby spinach and finishing with the eggs.
