  • 1 Small Cauliflower Or half a head of a large cauliflower
  • 1 400g tin Chickpeas
  • 4 tbsps Moroccan seasoning
  • 2 tbsps Paprika powder
  • 2 tbsps Chilli powder
  • 2 tbsps Parsley Powder
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • Olive oil For roasting.
  • 6 Pita Breads
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 cup Spinach leaves


  • Preheat oven to 180°C
  • Dice up the cauliflower using the whole cauliflower leaves and all, and place on to a tray. Drain the chickpeas and chuck the chickpeas on too the tray with the cauliflower douse in a good amount of oil.
  • In a bowl mix together your herbs and spices with some salt and pepper. Then spice up your cauliflower and chickpea. Pour the spices all over and then massage with your (clean) hands to make sure everything evenly coated with the spices. Squeeze over your lemon juice.
  • Wap in the oven for 25 minutes or until everything is golden and crispy.
  • About 10 minutes before the cauliflower and the chickpeas are ready, start to heat up your pita breads I like to toast them. Get your spinach ready and any sauces you want ready to stuff those pockets
  • Take out the tray from the oven and start to stuff your pitas. Slice your pita breads in half and stuff with the cauliflower and chickpea mix spinach leaves and your fav sauce.
  • Enjoy that luttle pocket of joy and dance.


  • If you don't have Moroccan spice you can substitute with a blend of turmeric, paprika, chilli, parsley, coriander, cinnamon and cumin. 
  • This also tastes good just with the chickpeas or just with cauliflower. If you're only using one you can half the spice quantities. 
  • Give the cauliflower and the chickpeas a good massage with the spices before you chuck it in the oven so all the pieces get all the flavour. 
  • Depending on what oven you use it might take longer or shorter for them to cook.
  • Don't have Pitas? no worries wraps would also be boss.
