The prettiest cauliflower you have ever seen! I love serving this when I’m entertaining – it is such a WOW dish. And perfect for vegetarians too!


Serves: 4, as a side

  • 1 whole cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp hulled or deli-style tahini
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • Sea salt
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup almonds, roasted



  1. Preheat oven to 180° C (160° fan-forced).
  2. Wash cauliflower and remove leaves. Place stem down on a lined baking tray.
  3. To make green tahini, add tahini, parsley, lemon and 1/4 cup warm water to a food processor and process until combined, adding a little more water if needed to reach desired consistency.
  4. Drizzle green tahini over the top of the cauliflower, reserving about 2-3 tbsp for after roasting. Sprinkle sesame seeds and season generously with sea salt.
  5. Add cauliflower to oven and roast for 45-60 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
  6. Drizzle remaining green tahini and scatter roasted almonds over cauliflower. Garnish with extra parsley and a wedge of lemon.
  7. Enjoy!
