Roasted Mediterranean Cauliflower is a simple yet rustic side dish dressed in a harissa-tahini sauce with fresh herbs, chopped dates and toasted pistachios for crunch, all inspired from True Food Kitchen.
Preheat oven to 450 °F and line a large baking sheet with parchment and set aside
In a medium-sized bowl, toss together the cauliflower florets, 1 clove of garlic, olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper
Spread the cauliflower evenly onto the prepared baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes
While the cauliflower is roasting, make the tahini-harissa dressing
In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining garlic, tahini, lemon juice, harissa, water, cumin, turmeric, salt and pepper. If the dressing is a bit thick and does not easily drizzle off the whisk, add more water 1 tablespoon at a time.
When the cauliflower is lightly browned and tender, remove it from the oven. Allow it to cool about 5 minutes then transfer to a medium-size bowl.
Toss the cauliflower with the tahini-harissa dressing then lightly fold in the dates and pistachios.
Top with chopped mint and dill to serve.
