Coat cauliflower florets with 1 tablespoon oil and salt lightly. Roast in oven until brown and soft, about 20 minutes. Do not undercook! Cool completely in refrigerator.
Cut carrots into wedges: Slice across at an angle, rotate carrot so that the cut is facing up and slice at an angle again along the cut. This makes beautiful, evenly shaped wedges.
Coat carrots and onions in 2 tablespoons oil and salt lightly. Roast in oven until soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool completely.
In a food processor or blender, mix tahini, lemon juice, water, 1 teaspoon salt, pepper and 4 tablespoons oil until dressing is blended.
Toss cooled, cooked vegetables with dressing. Garnish with chopped parsley. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
