INGREDIENTS

1 head of cauliflower
1 can of chickpeas
3-4 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Berbere
1 tablespoon Ird
1 tablespoon Afrenje
2 teaspoons Senafitch
1 teaspoon Matafecha
3 tablespoons Niter Kibbeh
Sea salt to taste

 

PREPARATION

Rinse and drain the chickpeas thoroughly. Use a paper or dish towel to pat them dry. Too much remaining liquid will stop the chickpeas from getting crispy. Cut the head of cauliflower into bite-sized florets. 

STEPS

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, toss the cauliflower and chickpeas with oil, adding in spices until the florets and chickpeas are thoroughly coated 
  3. Spread the contents of the bowl evenly onto a baking sheet, and place small scoops of Niter Kibbeh on top of the cauliflower and chickpeas until you have used all of the 3 tablespoons. 
  4. Transfer the baking sheet to your preheated oven and roast for 30 minutes, or until crispy. 
  5. Add salt to taste and enjoy!

Serves: 2-3 | Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Buckwheat is a wonderfully versatile grain that can be made either sweet or savory. Its warming and drying qualities make it ideal for watery and earthy Springtime. It is high in iron and magnesium, nourishing the blood and the muscles. The apple is great for thinning the bile and cleansing the liver. This oatmeal with oomph leaves you feeling full and nourished but not weighed down. This is my breakfast most days in the Springtime and I love it!
