RECIPE: Turmeric Roasted Cauliflower with Honey Harissa Butternut Squash + Crispy Chickpeas with Fresh Herbs + Feta

This oven roasted cauliflower dish with honey harissa butternut squash and crispy chickpeas is topped with feta cheese and fresh herbs - packing it full of flavor! It's healthy, hearty and totally addicting! 


  • 1 head cauliflower chopped
  • 1 can drained chickpeas
  • 4 cups butternut squash chopped
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tbsp chili powder
  • 1-2 tbsp honey
  • 1 Vidalia onion thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp harissa
  • The juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint roughly chopped
  • 4 ounces feta crumbled
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400F. Line 2 baking sheets with tinfoil. Place butternut squash on one sheet, and the cauliflower and chick peas on the other. Toss veggies with olive oil, smoked paprika, turmeric, ginger, chili powder, salt and pepper and bake for 30 minutes then remove form oven.
  • Drizzle the butternut squash side with honey and toss- adding 1 tbsp more if it’s not in season and isn’t very sweet. Put the squash on the other baking sheet and add the sliced raw onion and harissa paste. Toss everything together as the residual heat softens the onion.
  • Finish by squeezing the juice from 1 lime over the mixture then plate. Finish with the chopped cilantro, mint and feta. Salt and pepper to taste.


If you don't have harissa or can't find it at your local grocery store - feel free to use sriracha, sambal or another chili pepper paste.
