Roasted Cauliflower Head with Orange Tahini Sauce


  • 2 cups Florida Orange Juice, divided
  • 12 strands Florida Orange zest
  • 1 head Cauliflower
  • 1/3 cup Golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup Tahini


Roasted Cauliflower Head with Orange Tahini Sauce

In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of the orange juice to a boil. Add the raisins and turn off the heat. Set to the side.

When the raisins have absorbed most of the liquid, spoon them over the roasted cauliflower and place back in the oven for 3–4 minutes.

Cut the cauliflower into florets and place into a roasting pan. Cover with aluminum foil and place into a 350ºF oven for 12–14 minutes until fork tender. Remove the foil and roast for an additional 5 minutes until golden brown.

In a separate small pot, bring the second cup of orange juice to a boil; reduce to 1/4 cup. Add in the tahini and turn off the heat.

Spoon 2 tablespoons of the tahini–orange juice mixture into the center of each plate. Place 1/4 of the roasted cauliflower over and garnish with orange zest.
