ZA’ATAR ROASTED CAULIFLOWER WITH YOGURT TAHINI SAUCE

Nothing beats roasted cauliflower.

If you haven’t tried it you need to jump on the bandwagon. I know a lot of people that say they don’t like cauliflower but I think they just haven’t cooked it the right way. When cauliflower is roasted it creates a sweet, soft vegetable that even the kids will love. Start with this Za’atar Roasted Cauliflower with Yogurt Tahini Sauce. It is a winner!  I have a few favorite recipes I make including this Curry Roasted Cauliflower and Roasted Parmesan Garlic Cauliflower.

When it comes to vegetables I try to mix things up every night to keep my kids interested. I admit that I can’t get my kids to eat every vegetable but I sure try.

By roasting vegetables you really can encourage even the pickiest of eaters to eat their vegetables. There is something about that slow roast of vegetables that just lets them really release their flavors and creates such a beautiful, sweet flavor.

Dinners in my house have been a bit crazy since school started. Between tired kids after a long day and after- school-activities I am all about easy meals like these Healthy Baked Chicken Fingers or these Mac and Cheese Muffins that I can have waiting for the family at the end of a day to pair with this Za’atar Roasted Cauliflower with Yogurt Tahini Sauce.

Now of course because of the flavors in this cauliflower recipe it pairs wonderfully with a lot of Mediterranean meals.

The cauliflower, za’atar and tahini are the perfect combination to accompany Kibbeh Meatballs, Shish Taouk Chicken Thighs or these Mediterranean Baked Turkey Meatballs.
