Ingredients
  

  • 16 oz cauliflower florets
  • 1/4 cup olive oil extra virgin, divided
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp water or more, as needed for texture

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 425F and prep ingredients.
  • Grease a non-stick baking sheet lightly, then toss cauliflower in half of the olive oil. Spread the cauliflower into a single layer so that each piece of cauliflower is touching the baking sheet.
  • Roast the cauliflower for 30-40 minutes or until browned and softened through.
  • In a blender or food processor, add the tahini, remaining olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt, paprika, roasted cauliflower, and 2 tablespoons of water. Blend the mixture together until a smooth paste appears, scraping down the sides as needed. Add more water to thin it out if out if needed, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  • Serve with your favorite crunchy low-carb side dishes (peppers, cucumber, pork rinds, homemade crackers) and enjoy!
