Roasted Garbanzo and Cauliflower Salad

Garbanzo Beans//Roasted Cauliflower//Chives//Mustard Vinaigrette

cauliflowerSo, I’m on a cauliflower kick and thanks to @thecrunchyradish, I was able to try out a new way of enjoying this versatile vegetable (it’s worth checking out my mock buffalo wings). Full of crunch and fiber from the roasted garbanzo beans, the starchiness of this legume pairs perfectly with roasted cauliflower! I finished it off by adding in a light mustard vinaigrette for a powerful and flavorful touch, which happens to pair just right with the chives (my quintessential ingredient to completing any dish). This recipe will have your mouth watering before you even dig in!

How to?

1. Set oven to 365*

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine:
2 cups fresh cauliflower, cut to bite size pieces
1/2 cup garbanzo beans, rinsed and pat dry
3 tbsp. freshly chopped chives
4 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 squeezed lemon juice
S&P to taste

3. Place on a baking pan and put the mixture in the oven for ~30 minutes or until golden brown

4. Let cool and mix in the mustard vinaigrette (recipe below)
