Whole spice-roasted cauliflower with pomegranate
- 1 large whole cauliflower, outer leaves trimmed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
- ½ teaspoon fennel seeds, lightly crushed
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 cup reduced-salt, gluten-free chicken stock
- 3 tablespoons gluten-free tahini
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Trim the cauliflower base so it sits flat. Using a sharp knife, cut a cross into the base. Place cauliflower in a small baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil.
2 Rub cauliflower with chilli, fennel seeds and pepper, and drizzle with lemon juice. Pour stock into the dish. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
3 Remove the foil and bake for a further 30 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a skewer. Place on a serving dish. Drizzle the cauliflower with tahini and sprinkle with rind, pomegranate seeds and parsley.
