  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp tahini

Prep Time


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees celsius

  2. Remove the leaves from the cauliflower and place on a baking tray

  3. Mix together the rest of the cauliflower ingredients to make a marinade. Pour this over the cauliflower

  4. Place in the oven to roast for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove from the oven and cover the cauliflower in tin foil to avoid burning. Place back in the oven to cook for a further 20 minutes

  5. To make the dip, start by peeling and chopping the carrot. Steam cook for around 10-13 minutes or until the carrot is soft

  6. Drain and rinse the butterbeans and add to your food processor, along with all the other ingredients. Blend on puree mode until the mixture is smooth and creamy!

  7. Serve the roasted cauliflower with a generous dollop of dip and enjoy!

My love and passion for vegan food was initially inspired by health problems. After being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and coeliac disease as well as suffering with mental health issues, I realised my diet needed to change drastically. My symptoms were affecting every area of my life, so I began to look at what food I was putting into my body and educated myself on how nutrition has a direct impact on how we feel, physically and mentally.
