Roasted Cauliflower, Chickpeas, and Olives

I got this recipe out of the Cooking Light magazine and made it tonight. It was so good. I had no problem getting my 2 kids ages 10 and 6 to eat it. A little different but delicious. Served mine with Basmati rice and mahi-mahi fish. Best part is it only has 176 calories.

Roasted Cauliflower, Chickpeas, and Olives


5 1/2 cups cauliflower florets (about 1 pound)
24 green Spanish olives, pitted and halved
8 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves


1. Preheat the oven to 450°.
2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small roasting pan. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with pepper and salt. Toss well to coat. Bake at 450° for 22 minutes or until cauliflower is browned and crisp-tender, stirring after 10 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
