Serves 4

  • 1 large head purple cauliflower
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1/4 cup tahini


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Chop cauliflower into small florets and roughly slice garlic cloves.

2. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet add broccoli florets and garlic.

3. Drizzle with one table spoon of olive oil and roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until cauliflower starts to darken (or if you’re using white cauliflower the tops begin to brown).

4. Add roasted cauliflower (save a few pieces for garnish) garlic, and tahini into a food processor and add olive oil and lemon juice.

5. Process until mixture starts to become creamy and then add salt, pepper, and cumin. Continue blending until creamy. Add a drizzle of olive oil or water until desired texture is reached.

6. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the extra broccoli florets and herbs or nuts of your choice (consider thyme and some pumpkin seeds).
