¼ tsp(s)

ground coriander

tsp(s)

ground ginger

tsp(s)

4 cup(s), florets

Olive oil

1 Tbsp

8 oz

15½ oz, rinsed and drained

2½ cup(s), thinly sliced

lemon zest

2 tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. To make spice mix, in a small bowl, combine turmeric, salt, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, ginger, and allspice; mix well. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss cauliflower, oil, and spice mix together until florets are well coated. Roast until very tender, about 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain (reserving a little cooking water), and keep hot.
  4. In a large bowl, combine hot pasta with roasted cauliflower, chickpeas, radicchio, lemon zest, and lemon juice; stir well (add a little reserved cooking water for a looser sauce). Sprinkle with feta, mint, and pepper; serve immediately.
