cauliflower steak tahini sauce

This recipe is all about the Tahini Dressing because you can put it on SO many dishes! We have made it with Smokey Cauliflower Steak and Salad - a great side dish, add your choice of protein.

I like to make the sauce in a blender as it becomes super smooth but you can easily just make it in a bowl too.

Makes enough for 4+
***note: raw tahini is not recommended during pregnancy


1/2 cup hulled tahini (125ml)
1 garlic clove (raw or roasted whichever you prefer)
4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (60ml)
1 tablespoon honey or pure maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup warm water (you may need less, or more!)
optional: you can also add fresh herbs (e.g. parsley or coriander) or spices (e.g. cumin or paprika) depending on what you are going to serve the dressing with.

- add all ingredients except water to hand blender (if you are making in a bowl just finely cut the garlic first)
- combine well
- slowly add the water and blend/mix until the desired consistency is reached (you may not use it all, you may want more!)
- taste and season with extra honey/maple, lemon or salt
- drizzle on everything!

For the Cauliflower Steak (you can also just make florets)
- preheat the oven to 200°C
- wash and cut cauliflower
- rub with extra virgin olive oil and chosen seasoning, I used turmeric, smokey paprika and salt
- roast in the oven until cooked and crispy (~30 minutes flipping half way)
- serve on a bed of grains (brown rice or quinoa), crunchy salad (red cabbage and cucumber) alongside your choice of protein
- drizzle with the tahini dressing and sprinkle with seeds (sesame or pumpkin)
