Gone are the days when cauliflower was merely an over-cooked, watery afterthought to accompany a roast. Its status was elevated thanks to the cheese sauce variations popular in the ‘80s, but in recent times, the humble cauliflower has taken on a much more adventurous role, often as the star dish of a meal, rather than just a mere accompaniment. This dish is delicious on its own for a light meal and goes down a treat when accompanied with other fresh salads also. The cauliflower is cooked to crunchy perfection, and the Tahini and Maple is a healthy accompaniment, while vegan-friendly, is absolutely not lacking in the flavour department. Who needs cheese sauce when you have this to delight your taste buds?
