2 sweet apples, peeled/cored cut into chunks
1 onion, cut into chunks
1/4 cup sliced fresh ginger
3 garlic cloves
Salt
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
5 cups chicken stock
Grated nutmeg
Preheat oven to 425F. Cut off and discard bottom of cauliflower. Halve cauliflower lengthwise; then cut crosswise into 1/2 inch thick slices (incl central stalk). Transfer to roasting tin along with apples, onions, ginger, garlic and 1/2 tsp salt. Add oil and toss to coat.
