Indulge in the vibrant flavors of the Middle East with this delectable dish. The cauliflower takes center stage, marinated in a fragrant blend of spices and roasted to perfection, creating a flavorful and tender shawarma. Accompanied by a refreshing quinoa tabbouleh, protein-rich lentils, and tangy pickled shallots, this dish offers a delightful combination of textures and flavors. The sautéed supergreens add a nutritious touch, while the za'atar tahini sauce drizzled over the dish provides a creamy and zesty finish.

I love chicken shawarma but when I ordered it from here I didn't like the chicken so I wanted to try this one as an alternative. It was really tasty and I would definitely order it again.

Loved the flavors in this bowl! The cauliflour was the perfect texture, the greens really balanced it out with the added nutrition. Za'atar is my new favorite seasoning.
