Mediterranean Cauliflower Casserole
Makes 8 Servings
Preheat the oven to 425 F (220 C).
Start with the casserole: Put the cauliflower, onion, bell pepper, olives, and chickpeas in a 9-by-13-inch (23-by-33-cm) casserole dish.
Make the tahini sauce: In a blender, combine the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, vinegar, oregano, parsley, water, arrowroot, salt, and pepper, and blend until smooth. Pour the sauce over the vegetables in the casserole. Stir to coat all the veggies, and then cover tightly with tinfoil.
Roast in the oven for 60 minutes, stirring once around the 40-minute mark. It’s done when the cauliflower is fork-tender and the sauce is bubbling.
When about 20 minutes are left on the casserole, cook the millet according to the package directions. Once cooked, fluff with a fork and cover until needed.
When the casserole is ready, remove it from the oven and stir in the spinach. Cover again for a few minutes to let the greens wilt. Taste and season with salt, if needed.
Spoon the millet into bowls and top with the casserole. Garnish with mint and sesame seeds and serve with a lemon wedge.
