Recipe Card


  • 1 (2 pound) head purple cauliflower, core removed and cut into florets
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup warm water


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375ºF. Toss cauliflower with 2 tablespoons olive oil and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Roast for 35 minutes, stirring once.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, mince the garlic and set into a bowl, then pour lemon juice on top. Let sit while cauliflower roasts. This helps make the garlic “linger” in your mouth less.

  • Step 3

    When cauliflower is done roasting, add to a food processor or high speed blender. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, remaining salt, garlic and lemon juice, tahini, and water. Blend until completely smooth, adding a little more water if needed.
