This cauliflower recipe is made with garbanzo beans in the oven. We are going to toss it in some olive oil with curry powder for an exquisite result. You can serve this as a side dish or as a lite meal with a side salad. Whatever you decide you will love it.
Cauliflower is high in potassium, calcium, vitamin A and C. It is also high in fiber. Garbanzo beans or chickpeas are very high in protein and fiber as well. This is an excellent and healthy meal. The curry in this recipe really adds a great touch. It goes wonderfully with all the ingredients.
Once I take these out of the oven I like to toss them with some chopped cilantro or parsley. That adds even more flavor and some nice color — but it is optional.
This is what you are going to need for this roasted cauliflower recipe with chickpeas:
1 medium head of cauliflower – separated into florets and washed
1 – 15 oz. (425 grams) can of garbanzo beans – drained and rinsed
1 TBS olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. curry powder
Chopped cilantro or parsley for garnish
Preheat your oven to 425° F (220° C).
Place the cauliflower and the garbanzo beans in a bowl.
Mix the oil with the salt and curry powder in a small bowl and pour it over the cauliflower. Toss it so as to coat all of it with the oil.
Spread the cauliflower into a roasting pan without piling it up. You do not want it to steam.
Roast for 20 to 25 minutes – until the cauliflower is lightly browned and softened.
Serve and garnish with cilantro or parsley if using. Enjoy!
