Roast Cauliflower with Taratoor sauce

I found this on the internet, and had to tweak it a bit.  After having gone to the trouble of tracking down Tahini, and making the sauce, I tried it with some Garlic and lemon Hummus and found it was just as nice, and a damn sight easier as I can get the hummus ready made. Still. It was fun. and very nice…
Roast Cauliflower
1  cauliflower, in florets
2 tsp or so olive oil
a few grinds of rock salt
a sprinkle  of smoked paprika
Toss cauliflower with the olive oil and season with salt and paprika.
Spread on baking paper
Bake 20 minutes at 190 degrees  until cauliflower is soft but still al dente  and starting to brown.
Taratoor 
1/2 of a 125g pot of tahini
 garlic – finely minced
olive oil
2 tblsp   lemon juice
2 tblsp  water
salt and pepper to taste
Sauté garlic lightly in olive oil until soft.   Add to tahini, water and lemon juice.   Whisk until creamy.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
Served here with chilli and lime marinated roast chicken.
Footnote:  Be sure to remove any snakes that are hiding in the cauliflower!

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
