How to Make Cauliflower Fried Rice


  • 2 15-ounce cans of chickpeas, drained, rinsed, and dried
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Toss the chickpeas with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread on a large baking sheet and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until golden brown and crunchy.

Make Ahead

The chickpeas can be roasted up to 1 day ahead. Cool completely and store in an air-tight container. Can be served at room temperature or briefly reheated, about 5 minutes at 400º.


Water is the enemy of crunch, so make sure you remove as much moisture as possible after rinsing the chickpeas. Use paper towels to remove any surface moisture, and if you have time, let them air-dry for 30 minutes before tossing with the oil and baking.
