Roasted Cauliflower with Olives

Roasted Cauliflower with Olives

Cauliflower, fresh thyme, shallot, tahini, salt, pepper, lemon juice and zest, garlic, kalamata olives

  • Where did I find it?

Elana's Pantry, Chicken with Cauliflower and Olives
  • Why do I like it?

The cauliflower is a nice balance to the lemon and tart olives.  The flavors compliment each other to create a well rounded dish.  Served with some type of grain, this is a great meal!  It is also delicious cold/room temp so you can have some the next day.

  • Any recipe notes or tweaks?

I wanted to make this recipe vegan so that meant omitting the chicken.  I also wanted to make it whole food, plant based so that meant omitting the oil.  Instead, I subbed tahini.  I added the thyme to the sauce instead of using springs.  I minced the garlic and added it to the sauce instead of slices.
