Simple is Best – Roasted Cauliflower

We have been out of town, celebrating birthdays, Passover and soon, Easter – so busy!  Here is a lovely little part of our dinner from last night – roasted cauliflower with tahini/lemon sauce.

I roughly chopped a whole head of cauliflower, mixed in some olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and red pepper flakes and let it roast in a 375F oven for about 35 minutes (or until it gets as roasted as you like it).  I think mixed up a few tablespoons of tahini with a few tablespoons of lemon juice to make a quick drizzle/dipping sauce.  Pour atop the roasted cauliflower, season with some paprika, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with more sauce on the side to dip the florets in.  A deliciously easy side dish.

    Wow! I love roasted broccoli with lemon and parmesan, but the cauliflower/tahini thing sounds great! I’m trying it tonight.
