Recipe For Roasted Cauliflower Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

Roasted Cauliflower Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing


  • 1 Head Cauliflower
  • 1 15 oz Can Chickpeas
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1/2 Bunch Parsley
  • 1/2 Red onion
  • 1/4 Cup Lemon juice
  • 1/3 Cup Tahini
  • Baking & Spices
  • 3/8 Teaspoon Cayenne
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Paprika, smoked
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Salt and pepper
  • 3 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/3 Cup Water


01Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Chop the cauliflower into small florets and place them on a large baking sheet. Slice the red onion into 1/4-inch strips and place them on the baking sheet. Drizzle the cauliflower and onions with olive oil and season with a pinch or two of salt and pepper. Toss the cauliflower and onions until coated in oil, salt, and pepper.

02Roast the cauliflower and onions in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, then stir, return them to the oven, and roast for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender and browned on the edges. Let the cauliflower cool slightly.

03While the cauliflower and onions are roasting, make the lemon tahini dressing. Add the tahini, water, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, cayenne, and salt to a blender. Blend until smooth, then refrigerate until ready to serve.

04Drain and rinse the can of chickpeas. Add them to a skillet along with the olive oil, smoked paprika, cayenne, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir and cook the chickpeas over medium heat for about five minutes, or until they sizzle and become slightly crispy. Remove the chickpeas from the heat.

05Pull the parsley leaves from their stems and roughly chop the leaves into small pieces (about 1.5 cups loosely packed, once chopped).
To build the salad, combine the roasted cauliflower and onions in a bowl with the spiced chickpeas and chopped parsley. Drizzle the lemon tahini dressing over top, and toss to combine. Serve warm or cold.

Pour the blended mixture into a second mixing bowl, continue until the process until all the ingredients have been blended.

Sift the flour and the baking together, and add to the blended conch mixture. The batter should be the consistency of cake batter. Should you need to add more water add a little bit at a time.

Heat the oil over medium heat, when the oil reaches 375 degrees drop tablespoon size balls into the hot oil. Turn over the fritter when the edges are golden brown, continue to cook until the entire fritter is golden brown. Drain the fritters on a paper towel and place on serving plate.
