Roasted cauliflower and quinoa salad

If you are on a diet regime with a goal to lose weight, including a cauliflower to your menu is a must. This low-calorie vegetable does not contain many carbohydrates, but it is full of fibers that enhance digestion, therefore speed up the metabolism. In combination with gluten-free quinoa, it will help you to stay full longer, take in many nutrients, and also save your leanness. Don’t forget to serve with a protein of choice, ie. legumes, a piece of fish, poultry, turkey, or meat. Bon appetit.

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ tbsp tahini
Juice of ½ a lemon
