Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpeas

Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpeas

My cousin Felicia shared this recipe from One Hungry Mama on Facebook last month. She said that she and her husband (Eeek – you have a husband!) are obsessed with this. Well, with that endorsement, I had to give it a try. Oh, yeah. I can see why they’re obsessed. I’m craving it right now, and I just had some yesterday. I really didn’t change much with the recipe except to leave out the parsley (to make it more palatable to The Girl) and to use a black/white pepper combo, because that’s what’s in my pepper mill at the moment.


  • 1 14-oz can chickpeas
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon seeded mustard (i.e., grainy mustard)
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • Freshly ground pepper (black or any combo you have in your pepper mill)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wash and cut cauliflower into bite-sized florets. Discard any outer leaves.
  3. Rinse and drain chickpeas.
  4. Toss chickpeas and cauliflower together in a large roasting pan with 3 tablespoons olive oil and a big pinch of salt.
  5. On the middle rack, roast for about 45 minutes, stirring now and then, until browned and cauliflower is soft.
  6. Whisk together mustards, vinegar, and 1/4 cup of olive oil with a big pinch of salt and a few healthy grinds of pepper.
  7. When chickpeas and cauliflower are done, toss them with the mustard dressing.
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature.
So yummy!
