TASTE: Roasted Cauliflower & Chickpeas

Roasted Cauliflower & Chickpeas

I've got another surprisingly delicious and healthy recipe for you! This is straight out of Gwyneth Paltrow's book, It's All Good, and you guys - this is SO good. There was practically no need for any adjustments to this recipe, because it's just so tasty. I never eat cauliflower, but I've been trying to find fun ways to sneak more vegetables into my daily eats. This doesn't even taste vegetable-y, it's just yummy and warm and nutty. It makes a great side dish but it's also a hearty lunch option!
