Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the cauliflower “steaks”

  • Cut away any leaves from the cauliflower. Cut 1-inch-thick slices from the center of the cauliflower. Rub each cauliflower “steak” with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper. Cut any remaining cauliflower into 1-inch florets and set aside for cooking with the sausages.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the cauliflower "steaks" and cook, turning once, until browned and just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the cauliflower “steaks” cook, prepare the sausages and florets.


Cook the sausages and cauliflower florets

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork if desired.
In another large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausages and cauliflower florets, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning the sausages once and stirring the cauliflower occasionally, until the sausages are browned and cooked through and the cauliflower is just tender, 10 to 12 minutes total. Transfer the cauliflower to a plate. Transfer the sausages to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut on the diagonal into 1-inch-thick slices.
While the sausages and cauliflower florets cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Make the gremolata; finish the tahini

  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.
  • Coarsely chop the capers.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a medium bowl, stir together the walnuts, capers, parsley, currants, sherry vinegar, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, stir together the spicy tahini sauce base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Spread as much spicy tahini as you like on individual plates and top with the cauliflower “steaks.” Spoon the gremolata over the cauliflower and serve with the sausages and cauliflower florets.
