Author Notes: Warm, charred cauliflower pairs beautifully with the vinegar and spice contained in Dijon mustard. To go a step further, I added garbanzo beans, making the dish a complete vegan meal with the addition of protein. Roasted garbanzo beans are really delicious! Roasting the beans makes them crisp and almost nut-like. For a comforting meal with loads of flavor, this dish fills the bill. —Madeline
head cauliflower–cut into florets
16 oz. can organic garbanzo beans–rinsed
tablespoons olive oil
tablespoons Dijon mustard (I prefer Amy’s brand)
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- In a large bowl, toss together the cauliflower, garbanzo beans, olive oil, and a few pinches of salt and pepper. Pour the mixture onto two parchment-lined baking sheets forming a single layer. Bake for 45 minutes or until the cauliflower is slightly charred and crispy.
- Pour hot cauliflower and garbanzo bean mixture back into a large bowl. Add the mustard and salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately! You won’t be able to resist any way.
