Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Remove the outer leaves from the cauliflower and the hard inner core, then roughly chop up the florets (don’t worry about how they look, they are going to be blitzed). Put the cauliflower in the large bowl of a food processor, blitz for 30 secs until it resembles couscous grains, then tip into a large bowl.
Mix the spices and olive oil into the cauliflower and season to taste. Spread the cauliflower ‘couscous’ out on a large baking tray in an even, thin layer. Roast for 12 mins, mixing halfway through so that it is evenly toasted, then set aside to cool slightly.
Once at room temperature, stir through the remaining ingredients and season to taste, then sprinkle over the mint leaves.
