Tahini Cauliflower

This year was the first time that I had tahini.  I was sold. Wikipedia says that tahini is a paste made from ground hulled sesame seeds and is used in North African, Greek, Turkish and Middle Eastern cuisine.

I wanted to add a little extra something to plain old cauliflower.  I added a bit of tahini and lemon juice to sauteed cauliflower – the result was fantastic!!

Directions:

1) Wash the head of cauliflower and cut into bite sized pieces.
