Prep the cauliflower “steaks” and sausages

Heat the oven to 425°F.

  • 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.
  • On one end of a sheet pan [on 1 sheet pan], arrange the cauliflower “steaks” in a single layer.
  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.

On the other end of the sheet pan [on a 2nd sheet pan], toss the sausages and cauliflower florets with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil, season with salt and pepper, and spread in an even layer.


Roast the cauliflower “steaks” and sausages

Roast, turning the cauliflower “steaks” and sausages and stirring the florets halfway through, until the “steaks” and florets are browned and just tender and the sausages are cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the sausages to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut on the diagonal into 1-inch-thick slices. 

While the cauliflower and sausages roast, prepare the rest of the meal. 


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.
