This recipe looks gloriously fluffy and cauli-tahini combination is so yum! It would make a great appetizer.


  • 1 small cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Colive Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Big pinch of the following spices: Black Pepper, Aleppo Pepper or Chili Flakes, Ginger, Cumin, Garlic Powder, Oregano

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • Juice of half a lemon

  4. Once it is boiling, put the cauliflower headfirst into the pot and let it boil for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove cauliflower from the pan and put it in a parchment lined oven tray.
  6. In a small bowl put all the spaces together.
  7. Pour Colive oil and soy sauce onto the cauliflower and rub to make sure it is evenly covered. Sprinkle with the spice mixture on both sides.
