  • 5 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  • 115 oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 T. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. fresh black pepper

Turmeric Dressing

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 Tablespoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups fresh spinach or other greens



  1. Preheat oven to 375º and line a large baking sheet with parchment. You may need to use 2 if your pans are on the small size.
  2. Add cauliflower, oil, turmeric, ginger, and salt to a large ziplock bag and shake to combine. Try to get the cauliflower as evenly coated as possible. You could also mix everything together in a large bowl.
  3. Spread the cauliflower on the baking sheet, making sure not to crowd. Leaving some “breathing room” between florets allows them to bake more evenly.
  4. Bake 30 minutes, removing halfway to stir/flip the cauliflower.


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Preheat the oven to 415°.
  2. Drain and rinse chickpeas. Pat them dry with a paper towel. They should be slightly damp – not sopping wet.
  3. In a large bowl or Ziplock bag, combine oil, garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper. Add the chickpeas and mix until well-combined.
  4. Empty the chickpeas onto the baking sheet and spread them out. Try to situate the chickpeas mostly together in the center of the pan. Outliers have a tendency to burn.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, tossing every 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. Remove and cool.

Turmeric Dressing

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mason jar and shake vigorously to combine.


  1. This recipe makes between 3 and 4 meal prep “bowls” or containers. Divide the cauliflower, chickpeas, spinach, and quinoa equally between containers and store in the refrigerator.
  2. When you’re ready to chow down, drizzle the turmeric dressing over top and enjoy!



This recipe is super customizable. You can add other veggies in with the cauliflower. Use a different type of greens. Leave out the chickpeas. Swap out quinoa for rice. Whatever your heart desires!
