ROASTED CAULIFLOWER AND TAHINI + POMEGRANATE DRESSING ASSEMBLY

1 | Preheat oven to 450* F.

3 | Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.

4 | Roughly chop cauliflower and toss with saffron, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread onto lined baking sheet and roast for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown. (Toss or flip the cauliflower halfway through.)

5 | While the cauliflower is roasting, make the dressing by whisking all the ingredients in a small bowl, adding salt and pepper to taste, and water if you’d like to thin it out. 

6 | When the cauliflower is done roasting, arrange it on a serving platter, and drizzle it with dressing and the aleppo or marash chili flakes, and enjoy!
