Roast Cauliflower and Butternut Squash with Tahini Dressing

Roast cauliflower is really popular in middle eastern cuisine typically served with a tahini dressing, I love it. If you haven’t tasted it before I think you will be surprised just how tasty it is.

Cauliflowers are one of my favourite vegetables as they really versatile and satisfying. I love them roasted, and made into cauliflower rice or as a light & grain free pizza base.

I love this recipe (its inspired by recipes I have been experimenting with from Ottolengi’s Jerusalem and Moro). The combination of the cauliflower and the butternut squash makes it a really substantial meal but it’s great with just the cauliflower or with roasted chickpeas.

The tahini dressing can also be used as a delicious salad dressing and once you’ve tasted roasted cauliflower I’m sure you’ll be a convert – its amazing!
