Takes 25 minutes

Serves 3

Ingredients
 

Cauliflower

  • 1 Cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp ground tumeric
  • 2 tbsp cumin seeds

Tahini Cream

  • 500 g Soy yoghurt
  • 8 tbsp light Tahini
  • 1 lemon juiced

Za'atar glaze

  • 2 tbsp za'atar
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tbsp smoked paprika Pomegranate

To serve

  • 1 Pomegranate
  • Fresh coriander/ flat parsley

Instructions
 

  • Fill and boil the kettle. Cut the cauliflower into 4 even quarters and give it a good wash including the leaves. Remove the tender smaller leaves and cut them in half lengthwise. Add the cauliflower and the leaves to a large saucepan and fill with just boiled water, a generous pinch of salt and 1 tbsp of ground turmeric. Cook on high heat for approx 8-10 mins until the cauliflower is cooked but still hard enough to hold its shape.
  • Drain and rinse the cauliflower and leave to drain and dry for a minute.
  • For the tahini cream, mix together the tahini, soy yogurt, lemon juice and salt until well combined and a lovely creamy texture.
  • Heat a wide bottomed non-stick pan on high heat and add 2 tbsp of oil. Once hot add in the cumin seeds and carefully place the cooked cauliflower open side down and cook on each side until golden brown in the centre.
  • While that is cooking, mix together the ingredients for the zaatar glaze until well combined.
  • Finley dice the fresh coriander and deseed the pomegranate.
  • To serve add a generous amount of tahini cream on the bottom of a plate or wide bottomed bowl, carefully place a cooked cauliflower quarter with the charred sides facing up on top of the tahini cream, drizzle over approx 2-3 tbsp of the zaatar glaze on top and decorate with pomegranate seeds and chopped coriander and enjoy!
