• Fried Cauliflower with Yogurt Tahini Sauce

    Fried cauliflower and yogurt tahini sauce2

    I’ve been in search of excuses to eat yogurt tahini sauce recipes that go well with yogurt tahini sauce. Two of my favorites right now are fried cauliflower and falafel (a grain-free AND a gluten-free version, coming soon).

    I first had fried cauliflower about a year ago at a Greek restaurant and it was deep-fried, and great, but I don’t want to consume a cup of oil with my meal on a regular basis. So, I found this one by Yotam Ottolenghi. Oh, and if you aren’t familiar with this book, I recommend it, although this recipe is not in it.

    I’ve made yogurt tahini sauce a couple of ways, and for this dish I prefer to add garlic to the sauce, but you can leave it out if you prefer. And you can tone down the lemon juice a bit to mellow it out further. I prefer a punchier version of sauce to go with the milder taste of the fried cauliflower. But just for the record, I could eat fried cauliflower even without the sauce.

    I followed Yotam’s recipe pretty closely, but I did vary on a few techniques, measurements, and ingredients. Take at peek at his, because you might prefer it. Also, I didn’t have pomegranate molasses and subbing it with honey didn’t seem right. Again, it’s up to.

      Could you toss everything in the oil and put it all on a baking sheet rather than pan fry?

    2. This looks amazing…I’m in the middle of a serious relationship with cauliflower, and will have to give this a shot! Would love to check out your gluten-free falafel recipe too if possible 🙂

    3. I’ve been seeing so many great cauliflower recipes lately, but I don’t have any cauliflower (yet)! I need to have one huge cauliflower night where I eat nothing but cauliflower recipes for dinner…but I have a feeling that wouldn’t turn out so well the next day…
