  1. Preheat the oven to 2400 degrees.

  2. Drain the chickpeas in a sieve and rinse with cold water.
  3. Cut or break the cauliflower into florets and place together with the drained chickpeas in an ovenproof dish.
  4. Mix the olive oil with the powdered herbs in a small bowl and spread this mixture over the cauliflower and chickpeas. Stir well so that everything is covered with the spicy oil.
  5. Put it in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, remove to stir, then put back in the oven for a further 10 minutes.
