A roasted veggie dish that’s packed full of flavor.

Za’atar Roasted Cauliflower Bowls with Sumac Tahini Sauce

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 20 minutes  |  Cook Time: 35-45 minutes  |  Serves: 4


Veggie Bowl

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large head of cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons za’atar (Combine olive oil and za’atar and use this infusion)
  • 2 cups cooked green lentils
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup minced parsley

Sumac Tahini Sauce

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sumac
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Toss the cauliflower with the olive oil and za’atar and place in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast in the oven until the cauliflower is tender and browned on all sides, about 30 minutes. Toss the cauliflower halfway through cooking.
  2. Divide the lentils and quinoa between four bowls and set aside.
  3. In a small dry skillet toast the almonds until golden brown and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Shake the pan a few times while toasting. Remove from the heat and when cool enough to handle roughly chop.
  4. Prepare the sauce by whisking together all the ingredients until smooth and creamy. This works best with an immersion blender or small food processor. Taste test and adjust seasonings as needed. If the sauce is too thick add a touch  more water to thin.
  5. Divide the cauliflower between the prepped veggie bowls and drizzle with the sauce. Sprinkle with the toasted almonds and minced parsley and serve warm or at room temperature.
