  • 4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ¾ tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 4 Tbsp. mild harissa paste, divided
  • 1 head cauliflower, trimmed and sliced into florets
  • 2 Tbsp. tahini (such as Soom)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 425*F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 2 Tbsp. of the oil, ½ tsp. salt, and 2 Tbsp. harissa; mix well. Add cauliflower and toss to evenly coat. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes, tossing once halfway through, until tender. Remove from oven and toss with remaining 2 Tbsp. harissa; bake for another 5 to10 minutes, until caramelized and charred in some spots.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare tahini-honey by combining remaining 2 Tbsp. oil, ¼ tsp. salt, tahini, honey, lemon juice, and black pepper; stir with a whisk. Whisk in 1 Tbsp. water to thin out to desired consistency.
  4. Transfer baked cauliflower to a bowl or serving platter. Drizzle with tahini-honey, and garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.
