Roasted Chickpeas with Romanesco, Peppers + Anchovies
We tried the recipe with cauliflower in the test kitchen and again with romanesco for the shoot. Both work just as well.
1 head romanesco (or cauliflower), torn into pieces
1 1/2 cups (or small can) cooked chickpeas
1 bell pepper, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons capers
salt + pepper
1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Place romanesco, chickpeas and bell pepper onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle capers on top. Using your fingers, tear up anchovies and place on the pieces of bell pepper (the anchovies will melt into the pepper while cooking – delish). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle olive oil on top.
2. Place tray in oven and cook for about 15 minutes. Remove, shake the pan to move the veggies and chickpeas around and place back in oven to roast for about another 10 minutes until the romanesco is nice and partially charred and peppers are soft and edges begin to brown.
Hearty soups always seem to taste better the second day: This turkey sausage stew delivers that bang in seven idle hours. While it's great for a crowd, if you’re cooking for one, make the whole recipe and freeze leftovers in individual, easy to reheat portions.
You can make this recipe using any white fish or salmon fillets and either a mixture of beans and peas or just one variety.
