Ming’s Roasted Cauliflower

What You'll Need


1 large cauliflower

2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger

1 Tbsp tahini

1 Tbsp organic miso paste

3 Tbsp vegetable broth

3 dried prunes or dates, pitted

½ tsp ground turmeric

2 Tbsp tamari

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

White and black sesame seeds, for garnish

Sliced green onions, for garnish (optional)


How to Make It


1 Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

2 Cut the leaves and stem off the bottom of the cauliflower head so that it sits flat.

3 Pokes holes in the cauliflower head with a sharp knife so that the spices can penetrate.

4 In a food processor, mix the ginger, tahini, miso paste, broth, prunes or dates, and turmeric.

5 Using your hands, rub the mixture over the cauliflower, making sure you get it everywhere, even on the bottom.

6 Roast the cauliflower in the oven for 45 minutes, or until it is soft and brown.

7 Remove the cauliflower from the oven and top with a sprinkle with tamari, a pinch of the ground black pepper, sesame seeds, and the green onions (if using), before serving.
