Cauliflower with Yogurt and Tahini Dressing

Crisp and snowy white – cauliflower looks so pretty in winter. This recipe, based on a classic Arab meze snack, comes from Yossi Mesilati of the Tazza d'Oro Café in Tel Aviv.
 

Ingredients (serves 4-6)
  • 1 cauliflower, separated into florets
  • oil for deep frying (or 1/4 cup olive oil for roasting)
  • For the Dressing:
  • 3/4 cup yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons raw tahini
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Heat oil for deep-frying and fry the cauliflower until deep golden. Drain on paper towel. Or, toss cauliflower with olive oil and roast in hot oven until golden (15-20 minutes).
  2. Mix dressing ingredients, pour over the cauliflower and serve at once.
