Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Trim the tough outer leaves from the cauliflower, leaving any tender smaller leaves attached.
  3. Cut the bottom of the cauliflower so it is flat and will sit upright in a roasting tray.
  4. Rub the cauliflower with oil and place it in a deep roasting tray.  Cover with tin foil or a lid.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until a knife can be inserted easily.
  6. While it is cooking mix together the lemon juice and zest, garlic, cumin, paprika, salt, tahini and yoghurt.
  7. Remove the cauliflower from the oven and spread this mixture all over the surface.
  8. Return to the oven uncovered and continue to cook for approximately 30 minutes or until browned on top.
  9. Remove from oven and garnish with chopped parsley to serve.

Tips:

Make the most of having the oven on and roast a chicken and some potatoes at the same time. 

This is also great served with a fresh green salad.
