Curried Roasted cauliflower and chickpeas

A definite must-try, super easy dish that is delicious and chock-full of healthy goodness.

This might be a bit of a surprise coming from a food blogger, but the truth is I don’t always want to cook. I don’t always love it. Sometimes, I find myself uninspired to cook. But even on those days, I still have to cook for the little people who rely on me.

When I crafted this dish, I was feeling uninspired and wanted something super quick and easy. I didn’t care who likes what and who doesn’t. I decided that everyone was going to eat this for dinner plus some roast meat for my meat-loving boys. I didn’t expect this dish to be great, just something edible.

I simply threw a few ingredients and spices together and voila; the perfect side dish or complete meal for a vegan like me. It was so delicious that even my not-so-veggie loving husband asked for seconds. Now it has become a family favourite. I love finding new ways of cooking vegetables my family enjoy, it’s not always so easy.
