Baked Cauliflower with Lemon Tahini Sauce
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Yield: 1 Roasted Cauliflower


  1. Start to heat water in a large enough pot for the cauliflower to fit.
  2. Preheat the oven to 205°C (400°F)
  3. While waiting for the water to boil, in a food processor or blender, combine all the sauce ingredients with a teaspoon of water and blend the sauce until smooth (you might need more water). Set aside.
  4. Once the water begins to boil place the cauliflower. Cover and blanch for 8 minutes.
  5. In a baking dish place the blanched cauliflower, stem side down. Take half of the sauce and rub it around. Add a centimetre of water and place it in the oven for 40 minutes or until tender.
  6. With the remaining sauce, stir in the parsley and black pepper to taste into the remaining sauce and add a teaspoon of water (more if necessary). Heat the remaining sauce in a small saucepan or microwave. When the cauliflower is ready, transfer it to a platter and top with the remaining sauce. Serve hot.


If I have leftover sauce I pour it under the cauliflower.

Also boiling in salted water will make the cauliflower taste better.
