    This sounds great Bethie. Sure jazzes up cauliflower from the sounds of it.

    Tahini is ground sesame seed paste. It is the primary ingredient of hummus which I make all the time. Hummus is really just a bean dip made out of garbanzo beans.(chick peas) Very healthful. Buy tahini in the specialty section of the grocers, it will last forever. 8)
