Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients:

1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets

2 cloves garlic, smashed

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

2 tablespoons pine nuts

1 yellow onion, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons tomato paste

6 tablespoons water

3 tablespoons white wine vinegar

3 tablespoons golden raisins

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

15.5-ounce can (no salt) chickpeas, drained and rinsed

3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Instructions:

  1. Heat the oven to 425°F.
  2. On a rimmed sheet pan, toss together the cauliflower, garlic, 2 tablespoons of the oil and ⅛ teaspoon of the salt. Spread into a single layer. Roast for about 30 minutes, stirring half way through, until golden brown and tender.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pine nuts and toast them, tossing often, for 3 to 5 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer to a small bowl.
  4. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet. Stir in the onion and the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt. Cook, covered tightly, for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the tomato paste, water and vinegar. Add to the onion along with the raisins, red pepper and black pepper. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the chickpeas and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring, until heated through.
  6. Add the roasted cauliflower to the onion mixture and stir to coat. Serve topped with the parsley and pine nuts.
