curry roasted cauliflower with lemon and tahini

this is such an easy dish to make and is full of flavor and nutrition.  cauliflower is packed with vitamin C, magnesium, anti-inflamatory vitamin K and omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, B vitamins and folic acid!  who would have guessed?! now on to the recipe:

1 medium head cauliflower, washed and cut into florets
2-3 T. olive oil
1 t. curry powder (or more to taste)
1/4 t. garam masala
1 T. sesame seeds (these have a lot of calcium for the amount!)
1/2 yellow or white onion, sliced into 1/2 strips

tahini (i buy it from trader joes in the refrigerated section next to the hummus)
cilantro/italian parsley

mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

spread evenly on a baking sheet and cook @ 400* for about 15 min.  half way through, move cauliflower around with a spatula to evenly brown.

once it is brown and roasted to your liking, take it out of the oven and sprinkle with cilantro or italian parsley.

you can eat it fresh out of the oven or served at room temperature.  delicious with a squeeze of lemon and a dip in the tahini bath.  soooooooooooooooooo tasty. enjoy!
