Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpeas Salad

I love Gwyneth Paltrow. She is a great actress, very talented person and just a great looking woman.

Her book “It’s All Good” is perfect for trying some healthy and new recipes. I am always looking for some interesting healthy dishes, so her ideas work great in my kitchen. One of the recipes that I tried is Roasted Cauliflower and chikpeas warm salad.

New, unexpectable flavors that won’t leave you hungry.

Roasted Cauliflower and chikpeas salad.


1 can of chickpeas, rinsed, drained and dried ( I boiled my own ones chikpeas).
1 cauliflower, cut up into florets
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
Fresh parsley

For the dressing.

3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
5-6 tablespoons of olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oven to 425 F

Place the florets and chickpeas on a large baking tray.  Sprinkle with the olive oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and lemon zest.

Shake well and place in the oven for approximately 35-40 minutes or until the cauliflower is golden.

Remove from the oven.

To make the dressing, place all the ingredients in a jar, screw the lid on tight and shake well.

Place the cauliflower and chickpeas in a bowl, pour over the dressing, add as much chopped parsley as you like and toss together.
