I must admit, I’ve never been the biggest cauliflower fanatic. But once I started realizing how versatile this veggie is, I just can’t get enough of it! It’s great in soups, curries, baked, braised and even mashed (replacement for mashed potatoes).
This recipe was inspired by one of my favourite Vancouver restaurants calledNuba. Nuba serves Lebanese cuisine and they have a dish called Najib’s Special which is crispy cauliflower tossed with lemon and sea salt and served with tahini. It’s absolutely to die for and one order is just never enough. At Nuba the cauliflower is deep fried, which of course, I’m not able to mimic at home without a deep fryer. But that’s probably for the best considering that roasting the cauliflower is a healthier alternative, which still results in a crispy and delicious final product.
What else do I love about this recipe other than the saltiness, tanginess, cheesiness and heartiness? … It’s just so easy to make! So if you’re feeling like your’re on the cauliflower fence, you just might need to give this one a try.
