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.

this is definitely going into heavy rotation at my house- more delicious than I even imagined!! I did make a few changes, though – I added mushrooms, carrots, and a small sweet onion to the roasted cauliflower and chickpeas….and I am not a fan of garlic (sorry!) so I omitted that and used chili paste in place of the siracha.,a warning for those who try this- chili paste is VERY spicy, so cut back on quantity. still- uber- delicious!!!
Ah YAY! I am so glad that you are loving this recipe, Molly. I LOVE how versatile it is and that you were able to adjust it to your preference. Thank you so much for your review + star rating, I truly appreciate it!
