I’ve told you how much I laaave pomegranates already, right? Well, this is my favourite way to eat cauliflower. We’ve had a similar version a couple of times at our favourite restaurant (@eateightysix) and I found a sad cauliflower chilling out in my fridge so thought whip up a little something-something. Watch how I put it together on my IG Highlights. Couple of tips for a good roasted cauli: use a hot oven, preheat your roasting tray and don’t overcrowd it. —Nikoletta

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Cut your cauliflower into florets and wash them. Add them to boiling water for no more than 10 minutes until they’ve softened a little.
  2. Drain them, run them under cold water for 30 seconds and pat them dry with a paper towel. In a large bowl, add the olive oil, sweet paprika and salt and stir. Add the dry cauliflower florets into the bowl and toss until they are coated. Space them out on to a preheated roasting tray and cook for about 35-45 minutes until golden.
  3. For the tahini sauce, grate the garlic into a bowl, add the tahini and water and combine. Add the yoghurt, lemon juice and seasoning and mix. Spoon the sauce into your serving bowl, place the cauliflower on top and drizzle the pomegranate molasses. Garnish with fresh mint, parsley, chopped roasted almonds and pomegranate seeds.
