Roasted Cauliflower in Tahini – Buddha Bowl

Roasted Cauliflower in Tahini – Buddha Bowl
A buddha bowl with roasted cauliflower, seasoned well, a drizzle of olive oil and tossed in a tahini dressing.  That’s how my roasted cauliflower became the centerpiece of this buddha bowl (and the centrepiece of my mind :)). 
Cauliflower has never tasted this good!
We definitely eat with our eyes first as the saying goes so if you don’t like cauliflower then do try roasting it. Veggies are always easier to eat roasted especially if you don’t particularly like them.


Cauliflower roast takes about 20 to 25 minutes and it’s done! I didn’t use any time to cook the noodles in this recipe because there were cooked the day before which cut the time down in half. By the time I had the cauliflower in the oven covered in my tahini on the spot creation which turned out so good I ate it with crackers after that. Honestly if you do make it you will want to have it on just about everything!

I am all about maximum taste and there is nothing left to chance with this cauliflower.


You would think that a Buddha bowl should be a rounded belly bowl filled to the brim like a rounded stomach? Well this bowl is not that but it is still a Buddha bowl because I like to think that the meaning in terms of food is more mindful eating and that’s what this is so let’s get to it.

Sometimes what I want to eat is a lot simpler in my mind when I walk into the kitchen.  It’s a thought more like salad, toast or fruit and then I end up creating with whatever it is I can find. Last night’s buckwheat noodles from a stir-fry because when I make noodles I always make just a little more than I need. Love noodles, you can make so much with them in such little time.
