If you’ve been reading LaaLoosh for a while, you’ll probably know that roasting vegetables is one of my favorite ways to eat them. The roasting process adds such a fantastic flavor, and even my kids will eat their veggies this way, so that’s a huge plus.
One of our family’s favorite vegetables to roast is cauliflower, so recently, I decided to experiment with a few ideas and see if I could take a standard, roasted cauliflower recipe, and kick it up a notch. Mission accomplished.
This Roasted Cumin Spiced Cauliflower and Garbanzo Beans is so ridiculously simple, but is absolutely delicious and truly tastes like something that would be served as a side dish in a fancy restaurant. You can enjoy it is as is, or serve on top of salads or in soups for added flavor bonus.
I like to serve it in a pretty bowl, garnished with fresh parsley, alongside my protein of choice.
If you are looking for a way to get more fiber in your diet, this easy Weight Watchers side dish recipe is a must.
ROASTED CUMIN SPICED CAULIFLOWER AND GARBANZO BEANS RECIPE
- 1 medium head of cauliflower - (chopped into florets)
- 1 15 oz can garbanzo beans - (drained and rinsed)
- Zest of a lime
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400, and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly mist with cooking spray or an olive oil mister.
- Place all ingredients in a large Ziplock bag, seal, and shake well to evenly coat.
- Dump contents onto baking sheet, and spread out evenly.
- Place in oven and roast for about 20 minutes, shaking the baking sheet once or twice throughout, to help ensure even roasting.
I love this recipe and have made it a few times. It tastes great on a salad after being chilled in the refrigerator. I just ran the ingredients through the WW recipe builder, and it comes to 4 PP per serving (for 6 servings). Why do you list this as 3 PP?
The WW Recipe Builder doesn’t always calculate based on exact brands. They typically use an average for each ingredient. I calculate the Points Plus based on the labels off of the exact ingredients I use. In this case, I probably used a brand of garbanzo beans that were less in Points Plus that the Weight Watchers Recipe Builder’s average.
This looks amazing! Planning to make it tomorrow, BUT I don’t know why you do not have you site set up to allow me to Pin this on my Pintrest page, I like to go there to get my recipes and reuse them!
