Tahini Roasted Cauliflower
We all have that go-to side dish that is super simple you can make it with your eyes closed. The one that’s a weeknight staple but also delicious and unique enough to impress company. This Tahini Roasted Cauliflower is just that dish. The tahini adds an unexpected flavor that pairs so well with chicken, seafood and even lamb if you are fancy like that. Make sure you roast it until it is soft and beautifully charred. Trust me, we’ve converted non-cauliflower lovers with this deliciousness.
From a nutritional standpoint cauliflower is a Rockstar. A cup of cauliflower has more than 91% of your daily vitamin C and is an excellent source of fiber! You’re probably seeing cauliflower everywhere right now – as pizza crust, replacing rice and even in smoothies. There is good reason for this, studies show that the sulphur-containing compounds in cauliflower (and other cruciferous vegetables) can help increase the function of the liver, produce beneficial enzymes and even help prevent some forms of cancer.
