Roasted Idaho® Potatoes, Cauliflower and Chickpeas with Kalamata Olive Vinaigrette

Ingredients:

  • 1½ pounds of yellow flesh Idaho® potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 small head of cauliflower cut into bite-sized florets
  • 1 15-ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 7 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2½ teaspoons coarse salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • ½ cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped (2½ ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large clove of garlic, pressed
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley leaves, optional garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF for convection or 450ºF for conventional.
  2. In a large bowl toss potatoes, cauliflower and chickpeas with 4 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 teaspoons of salt and cumin seeds. Spread the mixture out in large non-stick low-sided baking pan or one lined with foil. Roast for 30-35 minutes or until the cauliflower and potatoes are tender and starting to brown.
  3. While the vegetables are roasting, whisk the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil with the chopped olives, lemon juice, garlic, ground cumin, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  4. In a large bowl toss roasted vegetables and chickpeas with half the vinaigrette. Transfer to a serving bowl or platter. Drizzle the rest of the vinaigrette over the top. Garnish with chopped parsley, if you like. Serve warm or at room temperature.
