Roasted cauliflower

This is an unusual recipe for this blog, it is not based on a traditional Italian dish but on a gorgeous vegetarian lunch I had in Iceland.

The combination of flavours and textures is just flawless, even if you are not a big fan of cauliflower I am sure you will love this recipe!

Ingredients for 3 people:

  • One cauliflower
  • One tin of canned chickpeas
  • One small red onion
  • Paprika
  • Tumeric
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Almond flakes


  1. Wash the cauliflower
  2. Cut the cauliflower in florets
  3. Cut the onion in small slices
  4. Put cauliflower, onion and chickpeas in one tray
  5. Add a generous amount of oil, salt, pepper, tumeric, paprika and spread everything evenly so that all cauliflower florets have a nice yellowish-orange colour
  6. Spread the vegetables evenly on the tray, trying to put the cauliflower on the edges and the onions and chickpeas in the centre
  7. Put in the oven, fan 200° for 20 minutes or until the edges of the florets are goldened
  8. Fry the almond flakes in a pan with some olive oil (I prefer to just toast them with no oil)
  9. When the vegetables are ready, take them out the oven and sprinkle the almond flakes on top of the vegetables
