Roasted Cauliflower with Tahini & Braised ChardServes 2-4
A whole, roasted cauliflower is both delicious and beautiful to serve to veggie loving guests! The easy marinade creates a nice golden crust while pairing well with a zingy tahini dipping sauce. We like to serve the roasted cauliflower with a hearty side of braised chard. We opted to use virgin coconut oil for these dishes for the delicious coconut-y flavor it lends to both the cauliflower and greens.Ingredients:1 teaspoon garam masala1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds1 lemon, juiced3/4 cup Greek yogurtFreshly ground black pepperKosher salt1 head cauliflower2 tablespoons virgin coconut oilTahini Sauce:1/2 cup tahini1 lemon, juiced1 clove garlic, minced2 tablespoons olive oilWater to thinGarnish:2 tablespoons parsley, mincedDirections:1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.2. Mix the marinade by whisking the Greek yogurt, garam masala, cumin seeds, and lemon juice together.3. Trim away the leaves and cut the bottom of the cauliflower, so that it can sit flat in a pot.4. Pour the coconut oil over the head of cauliflower, then smear the head with the Greek yogurt marinade.5. Place the marinated cauliflower head in a Dutch oven, and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until the exterior has browned, and the interior of the cauliflower can easily be pierced with the tip of a sharp knife. If the cauliflower seems to be cooked, but is not browning, use the broiler to brown the crust.6. While the cauliflower is roasting, make the tahini sauce by whisking all ingredients together in a small bowl. Add enough cold water and stir until the desired consistency is attained.7. To serve, cut the roasted cauliflower into wedges. Serve while hot with a side of tahini dipping sauce. Make it a meal with the braised chard recipe below.Braised ChardIngredients:1 bunch chard4 cloves garlic, sliced 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil 1/4 cup vegetable brothBraised Chard Directions:1.
