Cauliflower Tahini

Cauliflower Tahini is one of the quickest and simplest dinner recipe. Tahini is basically Sesame seeds paste. My husband's stay in Cyprus has resulted in Middle Eastern dishes' regular presence in our Menu. Cauliflower Tahini is one of them. Its a very simple and quick recipe.
Cauliflower Tahini

Prep. Time - 2 mins
Cooking Time - 10-15 mins

1 cup Cauliflower florets
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/4th cup Tahini Paste
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
1 tsp Chopped Parsley
1 tsp Chopped Basil

Preheat the oven at 400 F /204 C.

Toss the cauliflower florets with little olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper and place them in the preheated oven for cooking. Cauliflower would be nice and crispy within 10-12 minutes. If they are not crispy, broil them for 1 minute.
Meanwhile put a small pan on medium heat. Add 1 tsp olive oil. Add Tahini, lemon juice, black pepper, salt and stir continuously. Adding lemon juice gives a nice foamy texture to tahini. Remove from heat. Add chopped Parsley and Basil.

Mix this with the baked crispy cauliflower florets and Cauliflower tahini is ready to eat :)
