With just a handful of ingredients, you can throw together a flavorful dinner featuring this year's hottest ingredient - cauliflower. (So hot right now!) When you're cooking with Toasted Quinoa you can keep the flavors simple, and let the toasty, nutty flavor of the seeds shine through.
1 head cauliﬂower, cut into ﬂorets
1 tsp ground turmeric
Olive oil, as needed

1 head of garlic, peeled
1 cup Toasted Quinoa, plus water as directed
1 tsp ground cumin
1/3 cup tahini
1 Tbs miso paste

juice of 1/2 a lemon
Combine cauliﬂower and turmeric and roast at 400° for 35 minutes. On a separate pan, also roast the red pepper and garlic for 25 minutes. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on each to prevent sticking.

In a food processor, blend the roasted red pepper and garlic with a pinch of salt, a drizzle of olive oil and cumin.
In a large bowl, combine cooked Toasted Quinoa with dressing and chopped parsley. Top with roasted cauliﬂower and red pepper sauce.
