When baked, it's crispy and crunchy with a slight earthy taste. It's then topped off with herbaceous pesto, sweet caramelized onions, spicy habanero mozzarella cheese, and fresh cherry tomatoes.
This warm and comforting vegetarian dish is made with cauliflower and chickpea scented with cumin, ginger, and garlic in a coconut milk broth. For an earthier version swap out the chickpeas for pigeon peas and after the stew has simmered. Since pigeon peas won't thicken the soup like chickpeas, just add an slurry of cornstarch and water.
