Sriracha Cauliflower and Chickpea Sheet Pan Meal

A simple chickpea sheet pan meal that is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. Roasted cauliflower, chickpeas, and a delicious Sriracha-based sauce. Gluten-free and vegan.

Like my vegan power bowl recipe, this sheet pan meal was inspired by Terra’s Kitchen, a meal delivery service that we used to use all the time.

Their Korean BBQ Cauliflower and Chickpeas was one of our favorite meals to order, but since the business is closed we’ve had to resort to making our own version at home!

I can’t even look at these pictures without my mouth watering… but this dish gets major bonus points because it’s so simple. You can totally throw this recipe together in under 30 minutes and with only one pan! It’s the perfect weeknight dinner, great for those nights when you’re thinking of throwing a frozen pizza in the oven but know you’d be better off getting in some veggies. Haha!

How to Make a Chickpea Sheet Pan Meal

You’ll start by roasting the cauliflower and chickpeas. If you’re short on time, you can buy a bag of cauliflower florets, otherwise chop up a head of cauliflower. Drain a can of chickpeas, rinse them and pat them dry. Quick and easy! Don’t stress about getting the chickpeas perfectly dry.

Toss the cauliflower florets and chickpeas in olive oil, salt and pepper, and roast away!

While your veggies are roasting, whip up the delicious Sriracha sauce. After the veggies are done roasting, toss them in the sauce and then you’ll actually broil them in the oven for a few extra minutes. This will give the veggies a tasty caramelized char and really combines the flavors of the sauce and roasted veggies!

When it’s all heated through, dish up some brown rice or quinoa (secret: I keep frozen rice in the freezer for easy meals like this) and serve the cauliflower and chickpeas on top. Scatter a few scallions and crushed peanuts on top to garnish and enjoy.

Description

A simple sheet pan meal that is the perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. Roasted cauliflower, chickpeas and a delicious Sriracha-based sauce. Gluten-free and vegan.


Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 1 15oz can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • cooked brown rice or quinoa, for serving (optional)

Sriracha Sauce

  • 2 Tablespoons Sriracha

  • 2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, chopped + extra for topping
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts + extra for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up.
  2. Break your head of cauliflower into bite-size florets and save any large stems for another use. Add florets and chickpeas onto your prepared baking dish and toss with olive oil, sea salt and pepper.
  3. Place into preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes.
  4. While cauliflower and chickpeas are roasting, make the Sriracha sauce by combining all ingredients in a small bowl.
  5. Once cauliflower and chickpeas have roasted for 20 minutes, remove from oven and toss with the sauce to coat. Increase oven temp to broil, add pan back to the oven and broil for about 6-7 minutes. Remove from oven and serve the dish warm over brown rice or quinoa (if using). Garnish each portion with extra scallions and crushed peanuts.

      Another great recipe – thank you Brittany. I had to make a couple of substitutions based on what I had on hand – chili garlic sauce for the Sriracha and yellow onion for the green onion – but it was delicious regardless! Served it with shrimp burger on top for extra protein. Making the peanut tofu tonight.

      Just delicious!!! I served this tonight with Asian Salmon and it was so good! I thought we would have leftovers but we ate every bite. I did cut the sriracha in half for my husband who doesn’t love his food too spicy and it was perfect. Thank you. I will be making this again.

      Holy cow this was amazing! Super easy and delicious. Because my oven runs hot, I roasted at 425 and flipped the pan around halfway through. Only broiled for 1 minute to avoid burning things. It is extremely spicy so next time I might reduce the sriracha a little bit. To be fair, eating it with rice would cut the heat a little. I was too impatient and ate it plain 🙂

      This is so delicious! I made with some quiona and it was a really filling dinner. Next time I’ll add 1 tablespoon of sriracha instead of 2 though, this was a little hot.

      This recipe is AMAZING!!!! I wish I had doubled the recipe because my husband and I fought over a second helping!
