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.

This has quite an "adult" flavour that really grows on you. I used a less processed raw tahini and it has a sort of bitter flavour but not one I find unpleasant. I upped the lemon to a whole one for the half recipe I made and enjoyed that a lot. I would definately make this again as I have a jar of that tahini to use!

I liked this but didn't love it. I found the tahini too bitter and overpowering. I steamed my cauliflower for 5 minutes until crisp tender. I used the cayenne and cilantro options.

I liked this however my three kids did not (two of which dont like cauliflower anyway, it was an attempt to make it interesting for them). My first bite i thought it was odd, but by the fourth i liked it. Maybe if the kids gave it a good go they would have liked it too.
