Spanish Cauliflower-Chickpea Salad


Cauliflower is ready to be harvested! All 4 of my plants are producing. This is the first time that has happened. Typically I only get heads on 2 of the 4, so I am very happy. This post is about what I did with the first two heads…

My two favorite ways to prepare cauliflower are pan searing and, what I did here, roasting. I had never tossed them with smoked paprika before, that was a neat addition. And look at that great color!

Here is the parsley from my garden, isn’t it pretty?

Bring together the roasted, smoked paprika cauliflower, some chickpeas, and parsley along with oil, vinegar and seasoning and you get a beautiful salad or side dish.

We had it as a side dish with arroz con pollo; it was a very tasty combination.
