    UmmBinat's Note:

    Delicious at room temperature or slightly warm. A middle Eastern style recipe modified from a recipe found on http://desertcandy.blogspot.com where it says, "Don't be surprised if you find you can eat a whole head of roast cauliflower yourself, it's surprisingly addictive."

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 3

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 410°F (Alternatively you may fry the florettes in a pan with oil, drain on paper towels and sea salt and pepper to taste after).
    2. 2
      Place head of cauliflower sideways on a large cutting board, and start slicing about 1/2 inch slices across the top. There will be a mess of tiny florets everywhere, that's okay. When you reach the core, slice the sides of the cauliflower in the same manner. Chop any large florets into smaller bits (about 1-2 inch pieces). Discard the core.
    3. 3
      Drizzle olive oil over a large baking sheet. Add all the cauliflower to the baking sheet, drizzle with a bit more olive oil and roll around so that cauliflower is coated. Season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    4. 4
      Roast cauliflower for 16-35 minutes, until browned in spots and large pieces of cauliflower are tender when poked with a knife.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, while cauliflower is roasting, place raisins in a bowl and pour boiling water over the cover. Let sit to plump. Toast almonds in a skillet until lightly browned and fragrant.
    6. 6
      Transfer cauliflower to a serving bowl. Drain raisins, and add raisins and almonds to cauliflower, stirring to mix. Drizzle tahini sauce including the garlic option over top (you may not use all of it). Sprinkle pomegranate seeds over top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
    7. 7
      Enjoy!

      I really enjoyed this! As most know I love roasted cauliflower my favorite Roasted Cauliflower & 16 Roasted Cloves of Garlic. I used purple cauliflower, whole almonds that I rough chopped, I did use your Quick & Easy Tahini Sauce. I did use all of the recipe mixing it into the hot cauliflower. Thanks for the good eats!

      To shake things up a bit, I substituted orange cauliflower for white and used part currants for the golden raisins (although I think a few dates tossed in would be good, too). I wanted to incorporate some pomegranate molasses into this recipe but didn't know how best to do that. A beautiful sight to behold! Thanks for posting! Reviewed for Veg Tag January.

      Didn't feel right giving this a star rating because I didn't complete the entire recipe. Got as far as about step 3, just the cauliflower roasting - and that was so delicious and tender that I didn't bother with the rest, and as it turned out I was short on remaining ingredients anyway. So I can't really say how the end version might have been, but certainly the cauliflower roasted on it's own is 5* in my book!
