Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Golden Tahini Sauce

Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Golden Tahini Sauce

This golden, tangy, creamy dressing will make your roasted cauliflower look like edible art! The dressing is equally delicious on grain bowls, kale salads or drizzled over grilled proteins. Watch us make it here!


For the Cauliflower
1 head of Cauliflower
Olive oil, to drizzle
Salt & pepper

For the Sauce
½ c of Seed + Mill Organic Roasted Garlic Tahini 
1 tsp turmeric (we love Diaspora Co.)
1 tbsp date syrup (we love Just Date
Juice of 1 lemon
1-2 tbsp water (or, as needed to achieve desired consistency)
Salt & pepper to taste


For the Cauliflower

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. 
  2. Fill a large saucepan with water, 1 tsp of salt and bring it to boil.
  3. Once water is bubbling, place whole cauliflower (leaves, stem included) in the pot and allow to boil for 3 mins 
  4. Gently remove the cauliflower from the water with tongs and place on sheet pan. Use paper towel to pat dry (this will help make the edges crispier!) 
  5. Using your hands, rub cauliflower with 2-3 tbsp olive oil, sprinkle with an extra tsp salt and place in the hot oven for approx. 20 mins or until cauliflower is starting to brown. 

For the Sauce

  1. Whisk ingredients together in a bowl with a fork or whisk. Add additional water if you prefer the dressing thinner, or add more tahini if you prefer it thicker.

To Serve

  1. Place cauliflower in the center of the platter, drizzle over the tahini sauce, scatter with additional herbs if desired. In the picture, we scattered tahini roasted chickpeas.

Tahini Milk Chocolate Bars
Tahini Milk Chocolate Bars

This recipe comes from Jessie Sheehan's new book Snackable Bakes, which we cannot wait to bake our way through!

"These are a take on my MIL’s Oh Henry!® bars, a fantastically chewy and flavorful bar cookie, that gives off plenty of the caramel/peanut/chocolate vibes of the actual candy. That is due to a slightly nutty oat base that is briefly cooked on the stovetop, baked, and then topped with a chocolate glaze. They were on regular rotation when my husband was growing up and I’m still jealous about that. Here, I’ve given them a little tahini makeover (usually they call for peanut butter) and I’m pretty darn excited about it."

We had a lot of fun making these skewers with the vegan kelp “meat” made by our friends at Akua! Anything that involves a grill, warm weather, good company and delicious whole ingredient food is going to keep us happy!  

We paired these skewers with a vibrant, herby tahini sauce that is perfect as a skewer dipping, drizzle sauce, salad dressing or crudite dip!
