It always takes me a minute to catch on to trends but I am very glad I decided to make this whole roasted cauliflower. After seeing so many images of versions of this dish I finally made one of my own and it turned out absolutely delicious (if I may say so myself). It is also very easy to make and requires very little active cooking time yet gives you a very luxurious and centrepiece worthy result. I will definitely serve this to my friends and family during the burgeoning festive season.

In the recipe you will also find a turmeric yogurt sauce with tahini. It’s cool, a little sweet and beautifully turmeric-yellow which marries so well with the hot and savoury cauliflower.

I would serve this as part of a spread with other smaller dishes such as olives, bread, some version of hummus and maybe a rice salad or some roasted potatoes. This is my favourite way of eating actually and lends itself very well to having an interactive meal shared with friends and family.
