Honey Mustard Cauliflower and Chickpeas

Roasted cauliflower is one of my go-to veggies to make during the week. It’s so versatile and makes for a hearty side dish when roasted with chickpeas. The spiced cauliflower florets and chickpeas are tossed in a few simple spices, olive oil, djion mustard and honey and come out so flavorful.

You can serve it over a salad, in a grain bowl, or as a side dish with your favorite protein. It’s a simple side dish made with only a few ingredients.

The honey mustard combination is one of my absolute favorites that can’t be beat. It works well on veggies and proteins, like my honey mustard crusted salmon or honey mustard smashed potatoes.

This side dish takes only 10 minutes of prep time and is seriously so delicious. The chickpeas get the perfect crunch, while the cauliflower stays nice and tender.
