Ve-Du-Ya Cauliflower Traybake

Have you tried one of newest Belazu flavours? Ve-du-ya is an exciting vegan take on the classic ‘nduja. It is a rich and spicy blend of calabrian chillies and sweet peppers.

Belazu's Ve-du-ya paste

Here’s how to use it:

  • Sprinkle on to pizza as a topping
  • Coat vegetables and roast for a spicy kick
  • Perfect as a base for a vegan ragu
  • As a cooking paste to add heat to a recipe
  • As a filling for sandwiches

We’ve decided to use it in a traybake, mixing it with a can of coconut milk, creating the perfect sauce to be served with rice or flatbread. This recipe is in keeping with our recent #InternationalEndFoodWasteDay campaigns. Rather than discarding the cauliflower leaves and stem, you chop them up and add them into the roasting pan, which adds a brilliant texture and crunch to the dish.
