Test Kitchen Tip
You’ll have a few tablespoons of spice blend leftover. Use it to sprinkle it over popcorn, bagels, roasted vegetables — the options are endless.
Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with foil.
For the spice blend, combine dried garlic, dried onion, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and salt.
Whisk together 2 Tbsp. spice blend, yogurt, oil, lemon juice, salt, and garlic in a bowl; season with pepper.
Add cauliflower to yogurt mixture and coat completely. Transfer cauliflower to prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. spice blend.
Roast cauliflower until golden brown and fork-tender, about 1 hour. Let cauliflower rest 10 minutes, then transfer to a serving platter.
For the sauce, purée cream cheese, goat cheese, buttermilk, lemon juice, and garlic in a mini food processor. Add parsley, chives, and dill and pulse until combined; season with salt and pepper. Serve cauliflower with sauce.
