Whole roasted cauliflower with tahini and tomato salsa

By Amanda Ruben

Serves 4-6 | Prep 15 mins plus steeping | Cook 2 hr 20 mins | Calories 444 (per serving)

1 large cauliflower head

1 tbsp saffron threads

1 tbsp sumac

1 tsp ground turmeric

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

½ tsp ground chilli

90ml (3floz) olive oil, plus extra if needed

1 tsp salt

FOR THE SALSA

¼ of a red onion, finely diced

5 tomatoes, deseeded and finely diced

2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

2 tsp olive oil

2 tsp lemon juice

sea salt, to taste

TO SERVE

tahini

80g (2¾oz) slivered pistachios, to garnish

2 tbsp pomegranate seeds, to garnish

2 tbsp chilli hair, to garnish (optional)

1 Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4.

2 Place the cauliflower head on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

3 Combine the saffron threads with 500ml (17floz) boiling water and set aside to steep for 15-20 minutes.

4 In a bowl, combine the saffron liquid with the sumac, ground spices, oil and salt. Pour the mixture over the cauliflower, making sure that it is evenly coated.

5 Cover the tray with foil and roast the cauliflower in the oven for 2 hours, basting every 30 minutes with the saffron liquid. Add more oil if needed to keep the cauliflower moist.

6 Remove the foil and roast for a further 10 minutes to brown the cauliflower a little.

7 While the cauliflower is browning, make the tomato salsa. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Season to taste with salt.

8 To serve, spread some tahini on a large platter and place the cauliflower on top. Cut out a generous wedge of cauliflower and pile the tomato salsa inside and around the edge of the cauliflower. Garnish with slivered pistachios, pomegranate seeds and chilli hair.
