Roasted Za’atar Cauliflower

Roasted-Zaatar-Cauliflower-1 copyWell, it’s official.

I’ve been formally dubbed The Recipe Hacker!

It all started with B saying I hack recipes when I take existing, unhealthy, recipes and transform it without the grains, gluten, dairy, soy and cane sugar. Then my publisher got wind of the nickname and, as they say, the rest is history.

I’m warming up to the name… 🙂

True to form, I’ve hacked another recipe for you today. This Roasted Za’atar Cauliflower was an appetizer that I shared with a friend at Yardhouse Restaurant. After one bite I knew that this was a dish that I had to make at home!

After a little investigation, with the help of our waiter, I deconstructed the ingredients and gave it a go at home. Turned out deeelish! Can’t wait for you to try it 🙂

Wait! What is Za’atar?!?

Za'atar Spice

That’s a great question! Za’atar was a new one for me too…

It’s a traditional herb and spice blend of the Eastern Mediterranean that includes basil thyme, sesame seeds, dried sumac and salt. Quite tasty!
