Contributor: Dr. Rashmi Chadha

4 Servings



4 tbsp olive oil

1 cauliflower - chopped into florets (stalks can be used - no food waste necessary!)

2 garlic cloves - crushed

2 tsp za’atar

Salt and pepper

½ cup vegan plain yoghurt

2 tsp tahini

1 tsp lemon juice

½ tsp maple syrup (to taste)

5-6 sprigs fresh parsley - chopped



  • Mix olive oil, garlic, za’atar in a bowl. Adjust seasoning.
  • Put cauliflower pieces in baking tray. Pour olive oil-za’atar mix on top, and gently massage into florets until coated.
