What’s even more fun than finding an amazing recipe to follow? Finding an amazing recipe by a celebrity chef you used to watch on TV! Longtime Food Network lovers will remember Chef George Duran, host of the shows Ham on the Street and The Secret Life of…, as well as The Ultimate Cake Off on TLC. Culinarily educated in Paris, France, it goes without saying that George knows food. Even better for the non-chefs of us out there, George knows how to make food that tastes gourmet, but doesn’t take a Paris culinary education to achieve, such as his Roasted Cauliflower with Turmeric Tahini Sauce.

Roasted Cauliflower with Turmeric Tahini SauceThe Turmeric Tahini Sauce is the real star of the show in this recipe, and is made with all-natural Mighty Sesame organic tahini. George loves Mighty Sesame because it is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, kosher, halal and keto friendly, and comes in an easy-squeeze bottle, which he greatly prefers over the tubs tahini is usually packaged in. You can learn about Mighty Sesame Co., their sustainability practices, and find their range of products and retail locations at www.mightysesameco.com.

To make meal prep quicker and easier, George also chooses Dorot Gardens frozen crushed garlic. Frozen herbs are great to have in your kitchen because you always have herbs with full, fresh flavor and nutrition that don’t lose potency over time. Dorot Gardens herbs are super easy, too; simply pop out a frozen cube of your favorite spice and add it to your recipe. Plus, they’re vegan, kosher, halal, non-GMO, and free from gluten, dairy, soy, nuts, and artificial preservatives and ingredients. You can find retail locations and the full range of frozen herbs at www.dorotgardens.com.
