We could taste lemon and tahini so we started there. Instead of making my own tahini sauce, I went the easy route and bought some at Trader Joe's. After roasting the cauliflower for 30 minutes, we tossed it in 1/2 cup of tahini sauced and sprinkled with parsley and served it over brown rice with some pita bread.
Lebanese Roasted Cauliflower over Rice
1 large head cauliflower, broken into florets
¼ cup olive oil
dash of salt and pepper
pre-made tahini sauce or better yet, make your own
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil for easy clean up.
In a mixing bowl, toss cauliflower with oil, salt and pepper until well coated. Spread in a single layer on baking sheet and roast, stirring and turning once or twice, until cauliflower is tender and crispy brown in spots, about 30-45 minutes.
Remove cauliflower from oven and transfer to a serving bowl. Pour tahini over the cauliflower and toss to combine.
Serve warm or let stand at room temperature over rice with pita bread
