What You'll Need
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cleaned, leaves removed & cut into florets (about 4 cups)
  • 1 small white onion, halved & sliced thinly (about 2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 cup tahini
  1. Preheat oven 425 degrees F
  2. Place cauliflower in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  3. Add 1/4 tsp each salt & pepper to cauliflower
  4. Bake cauliflower 15 minutes then turn on the broiler on high to cook another 5 minutes
  5. Remove cauliflower from oven & place aside
  6. While cauliflower is cooking, heat a medium pan to medium high
  7. Add extra virgin olive oil to the pan
  8. Once the oil is hot, add the onions to the pan
  9. Cook the onions until tender, stirring constantly
  10. The onions can burn fast so watch carefully & remove when tender 8-10 minutes otherwise they will burn
  11. Place onions on a paper towel & add 1/2 tsp salt & pepper
  12. To the pan you used to cook the onions, turn the heat to low & add minced garlic
  13. You should have enough oil left in the pan otherwise add a tiny bit more
  14. After a minute, turn heat off add lemon juice, paprika, 1 tbsp parsley, tahini & whisk in 12 tbsp warm water to thin (I added 12 tbsp to mine)
  15. Be sure to continuously whisk the sauce as you're adding the water or it may burn
  16. Place cauliflower in a bowl, add onions to the top then spoon tahini over it (I like to reserve about half the sauce for dipping)
  17. Sprinkle remaining cauliflower on top & enjoy!
