Especially for dinner during hot and long summer nights, where you just crave for a light refreshing salad. Topped with the lemon tahini dressing, this is worth a try! 

What is Tahin?

Tahin is a creamy paste that is produced when grinding sesame seeds – basically the counterpart to nutmeg. Especially in the oriental, vegetarian and vegan kitchen, it is often used, because it is not only super delicious, but also ensures a wonderfully creamy texture.

This salad is satisfying and so delicious!  

Roasted Chickpeas and Cauliflower

You know the best thing – this roasted cauliflower salad is super easy to prepare. Your oven is doing the job. While the cauliflower and the chickpeas are in the oven, you prepare all the other ingredients and that’s it!
