For the Veg

For the coating


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Steam cauliflower florets for around 5-8 minutes until softened but not mushy.
  3. Soak cashews in boiling water for around 15-30 minutes until soft. Drain water and set aside.
  4. In a blender, combine tahini, soaked cashews, minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, ground cumin, salt, and pepper. Blitz until you get a smooth, creamy consistency. Add water if the mix is too thick. Should be around the consistency of pouring cream.
  5. Toss cauliflower florets in half of the tahini-cashew mixture until well coated.
  6. Place the coated cauliflower on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cauliflower is tender and golden.
  7. Add the asparagus to the baking sheet with the cauliflower for the last 10 minutes of baking or until the asparagus is crisp-tender. Season with salt and pepper and remove.
  8. Once everything is roasted to perfection, remove from the oven and garnish with fresh parsley and one or two tablespoons of Sauerkraut or any other fermented vegetables.
