Heat oven to 500 degrees F with the baking rack in the lowest possible position. Line a baking sheet with foil and place on rack to heat for 8-10 minutes. Using a large glass bowl, whisk together the tahini, lemon zest, 1 Tbs of the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, paprika, and cayenne.

Transfer the florets back to the mixing bowl and add the remaining 1 Tbs lemon juice and toss. add half the nuts and all of the cilantro and toss again. Sprinkle the remaining cashews. Enjoy!
