Spice Roasted Cauliflower with Tahini Dressing

Brimming with spicy red pepper flakes, sweet fennel seeds, and flavorful curry powder, this dish takes cauliflower to center stage. A homemade tahini dressing is served underneath the spiced cauliflower to add richness and a welcome bitterness. We love this dish on its own, but it would also be equally as delicious served with roast chicken or warm pita bread.
