photo by threeovens
- Ready In:
- 1⁄4 cup pine nuts
- 1 1⁄2 lbs cauliflower, cut into florets
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- kosher salt
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1⁄4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 10 cups fresh kale, stemmed and chopped
- 1⁄2 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spread pine nuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast, tossing once, until golden, about 6 to 8 minutes (watch carefully as they burn easily); set aside.
- Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F.
- Toss cauliflower florets with the cayenne, 2 tablespoons of the oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper; roast, tossing once, until tender and golden, about 20 minutes, depending on the size of your florets.
- Meanwhile, use a large bowl and whisk together the tahini, lemon juice, remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, water, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper (add more water if needed to achieve the consistency of heavy cream).
- To the bowl, add the kale, onion, raisins, pine nuts, and cauliflower; toss to combine and serve.

I've been tracing my roots for at least 10 years. One branch came to America just after the Mayflower in the early 1600s. Others came in the early 1700s, late 1890s. So, my American roots run pretty deep and I am deeply patriotic. Just wish someone had thought to same me some land!</p>
