How was the Roasted Chick Peas and Cauliflower?

De-licious! This is a wonderful meal and very satisfying. The chick peas are filling and the dried cranberries add a touch of sweetness. Roasting the cauliflower really brings out its flavor and it’s my favorite way of cooking it other than to make soup.

It’s good for the person and the environment to eat a vegetarian/vegan meal now and again and this one is delicious and easy to make. It also holds over well so if there are leftovers it can go on a salad or just be slightly warmed and eaten for lunch the next day.
