    1. 1
      Cook the cauliflower by steaming or boiling until just tender; do not overcook! Drain and set aside.
    2. 2
      Mix the garlic with the tahini, cumin and lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce.
    3. 3
      At this point the mixture is a dense thick paste. Add a little water, tablespoon by tablespoon, until the mixture is creamy, then mix with the cauliflower.
    4. 4
      Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
    5. 5
      At serving time, garnish with a sprinkle of paprika, chopped parsley/cilantro and/or lemon wedges.

      My husband and I loved this! I made one big change-and that was I served the dish hot. After steaming the cauliflower I immediately stirred in the tahini mixture and garnished with the parsley and lemon wedges. (I think to thin the mixture I must have added close to 3 tablespoons.) I could only imagine what this would taste like by roasting the cauliflower. Thanks for sharing. cg ;)

      Very interesting! I will try this again with garlic powder instead of fresh garlic -- I think the raw garlic gave it the bitter/acrid flavor. Or, I'd be certain to toss the garlic with the very hot cauliflower to take that edge off. Thanks, Elmotoo, for another very different recipe! Made for N*A*M*E tag.

      This was quite yummy. Next picnic or camping trip I may make this again as there's no mayo or other ingredient likely to spoil. . . I reduced the tahini to somewhere between 1/4 and 1/3 cups. For garnish, I sprinkled chopped tomatoes around the edge of the bowl I served from. Next time I may use a little water to thin the tahini more. I suspect lightly roasted cauliflower, instead of steamed, would work well too.
