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!!
time: about 20 minutes
head of cauliflower
6 tablespoons tahini sauce
salt & pepper if desired
black sesame seeds
1) Wash the head of cauliflower and cut into bite sized pieces.
2) Heat up a skillet with a small scoop of coconut oil; let the oil get warm and then put the cauliflower in. Cook on medium-high heat until the cauliflower is soft, but not mushy, and golden brown.
3) Put the from the skillet into a serving bowl. Add the tahini sauce and stir, add more if you’d like (or less). Sprinkle a little salt and pepper into the tahini cauliflower and mix if you want.
4) Serve hot with a little black sesame seeds sprinkled over each serving.
