  • 1 medium cauliflower head

Sauce Mix:


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF or 200ºC.
  • Prepare the spices in a bowl.
    1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon cumin powder, ½ teaspoon paprika powder, ½ teaspoon turmeric powder, ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, but the cauliflower, until well combined.
    4 tablespoons water, 3 tablespoons tahini, 1 lemon
  • Trim the base of the cauliflower to remove any green leaves and the stem.
    1 medium cauliflower head
  • Make cuts in the cauliflower head and then rub the marinade all over the cauliflower, allowing some of it to come inside of it.
  • Place onto an aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour.
  • Remove from the oven and open the aluminum foil and place back in the tray uncovered to allow the top side to become golden brown.
  • I like to add the remaining juices in the aluminum foil on top of it once I have cut it in quarters.



  • You can keep the leftovers covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Use any herbs or spices you want or have on hand, have fun!
  • I use a brush to rub the marinade all over the cauliflower because the turmeric stains a lot, but unnecessary. You can also use your hands or even a plastic bag.
  • Baking time may vary depending on your oven, the size of your cauliflower, or how soft you want it.
  • You can keep it in an airtight container in the freezer for 1-2 months.
