Roasted Cauliflower with Spiced Tahini Dip. I was first introduced to this when Ella and I stayed with some friends friends for a few days enjoying the beach and togetherness. My friend @rana.unity made us this Arabic Roasted Cauliflower Spiced Tahini (not the proper name, help me out with the actual title, thanks 🙂
1 tbsp curry powder
1-2 tsp salt
drizzle of olive oil
1/2 cup tahini
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tsp curry
1-2 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp lemon + little water to thin it out about 4 tbsp
pinch salt and pepper
Roast the Cauliflower
- Preheat oven to 400F
- Wash and Cut cauliflower into even medium sized florets.
- Add to a baking pan with parchment paper
- Add curry, salt, olive oil, garlic powder to the cauliflower. Massage it all together
- Pop in oven for 30 to 40 minutes
Make the Sauce:
- 1/2 cup tahini, + 2 garlic cloves minced + 1 tsp curry + sprinkle turmeric + 1-2 tbsp maple syrup + 3 tbsp lemon + little water to thin it out about 4 tbsp + pinch salt. Taste and make to your perfect taste.
- Add water a little bit at a time to thin it out. You want it to be able to drizzle over all the cauliflower but it not be runny.
- Once drizzled I mix it all up and pop it in fridge until its cold. Its a cold salad.
- The way I am serving it here is a great approach if you are serving family of picky eaters. The plain toasted cauliflower tastes really delicious on it’s own.
- Add cauliflower into a bowl. Drizzle the sauce over top and mix together. You may have some left over depending on how big your cauliflower was and your taste preference. I like it pretty saucy.
- Cover and pop in fridge until it gets cold.
Buy larger jars of ethnic tahini, sesame only. You will save in the long run by buying bulk.
Quick Tips & Tools:
Baking Pan, medium bowl, spoon, knife
The way I am serving it here is a great approach if you are serving family of picky eaters. The plain toasted cauliflower tastes really delicious on it’s own.
If it is just for me though, I combine the sauce with the cauliflower and pop in the fridge to get really cold and marinated. This way is my favorite.
Make this ahead of time and store in fridge for up to 3 days.
