In this recipe from Kimberly Hasselbrink's new cookbook, Vibrant Food, she tosses roasted cauliflower with fresh parsley, Kalamata olives, sweet currants and a lemony, earthy tahini dressing. While this is a recipe from the book's 'Winter' chapter, it's light and accessible enough to work year-round.
