Baked Cauliflower Recipe


Baked Cauliflower Recipe | Turkish Kitchen

The Prettiest Cauliflower Recipe! We can even call is a cauliflower Birthday cake!! (no don’t try on teenagers!!)
I first tasted this in Barcelona in a great vegan restaurant in 2015! That trip changed my life as we had the seminar with @nutritionschool @joshuarosenthal and I decided to do Yoga teacher training.
Barcelona inspired me to be brave, creative and colourful again! I miss traveling soo much but for now we keep memories alive and travel with the food we cook at home!
This cauliflower taste will blow your mind and be a feast for the eyes! The tangly tahini sauce, colourful decoration and sweetness of pomegranate, crispy smoky pine nuts are the best combination.
