This recipe is from Gwyneth Paltrow's new book It's All Good. It was easy and tasty.

Yield: 4 servings

roasted cauliflower & chickpeas


a 14-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained and dried in a kitchen towel

1 head of cauliflower, outer leaves removed and discarded, cut into bite-sized florets

extra virgin olive oil

coarse sea salt

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon seeded mustard

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley



Preheat the oven to 400°F and set the rack in the middle.

Toss the chickpeas and cauliflower together in a large roasting pan with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and a big pinch of salt. Roast, stirring now and then, until everything is dark brown and the cauliflower is quite soft, about 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together the mustards, vinegar, and 1/4 cup of olive oil with a big pinch of salt and a few healthy grinds of black pepper. While the chickpeas and cauliflower are still warm, toss them with the mustard dressing and the parsley. Serve warm or at room temperature.
