Roasted Cauliflower with Spicy Tahini Dip

This is a catchup recipe from my Instagram account I posted a little while ago. Cauliflower is such a versatile and yummy veg, a bit like potatoes you can roast them, mash them & boil them but without the carbs and starch of potatoes. My 2 yr old loves them roasted in ghee and a little salt (no luck with the older 2, but that's ok, can't win them all!). We sometimes have this spicy tahini dip to go with them (it would go well with any roasted veggies you have on had :)

Prep Time: 2 mins
Cook Time: 16 mins

You will need:

  • 1 whole cauliflower, remove any outer leaves
  • About 2 tbsp ghee (buy on iherb or amazon
For the dip:
  • 3 heaped tbsp tahini (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 1-2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp raw honey (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 1 tbsp sumac (buy on amazon)
  • Optional 2 tbsp natural yoghurt (helps keeps the dip creamy)
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar  (buy on amazon)
  • 1 tsp chili flakes (to your preference)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 2 tbsp water 
Method:
  • Preheat your oven with top element (grill) to 200C degrees (390 F)
  • Remove any outer leaves on the cauliflower and wash well
  • Slice the cauliflower any way you prefer. I prefer just to slice it whole in 1cm thick slices so I get lovely big branch like slices, but you can also cut the florets individually. Don't throw the stem out though, roast that too!
spread the cauliflower in one layer
  • Place on a baking tray and spread ghee evenly or oil of choice
  • Place on the second highest rack for 10 mins or until golden brown, then flip over for another 6 mins or until golden brown

flip the cauliflower over once golden brown
  • While the cauliflower is baking, prepare the dipping sauce
  • Mix all the dip ingredients in a bowl
  • Gradually add a little water to obtain a 'dipping' consistency, taste and adjust with extra lime juice and salt as needed, it should be slightly sweet and tangy
  • Set aside until cauliflower is ready
  • If the tahini dip thickens before serving, add more water 
  • You can store any left over in the fridge, just add more water to thin when needed
