I've ordered a dish like this in restaurants many times but now I don't have to, I can make it at home. There is something about cauliflower and tahini that goes so well together. I love this dish with grilled chicken or fish, and some rice on the side

Roast Cauliflower with Lemon Tahini 



1 head of cauliflower, cut up into small florets
3 tablespoons canola oil
pinch of salt
2 tbsp 2% plain Greek yogurt, optional
1 tbsp tahini
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp parsley, chopped, optional


  Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

​  Toss chopped cauliflower with canola oil and lay over parchment paper. Roast in oven for 40 minutes or until lightly browned.

​  While cauliflower is in the oven, mix Greek yogurt (if using), tahini, lemon juice and water together in a small bowl. 

​ When cauliflower is ready allow to cool for 5 minutes. Place in serving dish and drizzle tahini sauce over top evenly. Sprinkle with parsley if using.
