Spice Roasted Cauliflower and Carrots with Tahini Dressing
We all like to overindulge during the Holiday Season but come the new year we are all looking for healthier meal options. We know “salad” is always the first thing that comes to mind, but why not level-up your veggie game with our Spice Roasted Cauliflower and Carrots topped with Tahini Dressing! Follow along below for what will be your favourite new year vegetarian dish.
First, preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut a head of cauliflower (about 700 grams), into florets and set aside. Prep your whole baby carrots (about 250 grams), by trimming tops and peeling. You can also use prepared baby carrots or larger carrots cut into smaller spears. In a large mixing bowl combine extra virgin olive oil, with ½ teaspoon each of: garlic powder, paprika, cumin and chili flakes and mix to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Then add the prepared cauliflower and carrots and toss to coat evenly. Spread the veggies onto a baking sheet and loosely cover with foil to create a warm, steamy atmosphere for the veggies to cook through and bake for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, remove the foil and bake uncovered for another 15 minutes, or until the veggies begin to turn that roasty golden brown that really transforms them into something amazing! While the veggies are roasting, prepare the creamy, nutty, tahini dressing. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of Krinos extra virgin olive oil with 1 tablespoon of Krinos tahini, 1 teaspoon of honey, the zest of 1 lemon, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of finely minced or grated garlic. Season with salt and pepper and whisk until smooth and creamy. Feel free to add 1-2 tablespoons of water as needed to thin out to the desired consistency – you should be able to drizzle over the veggies.
Once the spiced cauliflower and carrots are done baking, transfer to a serving platter while still warm, and top with the tahini dressing and some fresh chopped parsley. Serve and enjoy!
