Two weeks ago i went for brunch and ever since then i have thought about one of the dishes i ate there. Which was baked cauliflower with tahini dressing and cranberries. I am sure they used some sort of special spice or dressing recipe – but when i ate that dish i said that i had to recreate it at home.
And that was exactly what i did this weekend – and i am so glad i did. It is sooo good!
I can eat a whole cauliflower head – and eat this whole dish at once. Of course… for the sake of my stomach and not getting pain from all the fiber, i had to of course divide this dish into several meals! I may eat alot of fiber and my stomach can handle alot of fiber, but i am not invincible, haha
I will definitely be making this again – and it will be a new christmas dish to make!! You can of course make a batter for the cauliflower to make them more crispy, but i think i prefer them just plain with some seasoning!
So how do you make this incredibly simple & delicious dish…?
First off you need:
1 cauliflower head – washed and cut into florets
Seasoning of choice – i went for some paprika powder, but you can use whatever you want. Or just some salt and pepper
Tahini (or make a tahini dressing ex. tahini, lemon juice, garlic, water, salt and pepper)
Preheat the oven to 220C. In a bowl place the cauliflower florets, sprinkle over some of your seasoning of choice as well as oil. Mix until the florets are coated.
Then place the cauliflower in a baking pan and bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes. Or until slightly crispy and soft!
Once done, take out of the oven and allow to cool a little while.
Then pour over tahini – or the tahini dressing you made – along with cranberries and almond shreds!
Eat and enjoy.
This makes as a perfect side dish or if you are making a buffet.
Or you could just eat half this dish at once and call it a meal…. but from a nutrition standpoint it is not the optimal meal – but as long as it is not the only thing you eat it is fine for a one time meal now and then, hahah.
Meals aren’t always perfect or nutritionally balanced!
