This dish rocks. I love everything Morocco so I am not surprised I was this wowed by this colourful dish. Onions, raisins, hot chili sauce, cumin, parsley, cilantro and chickpeas serves up a veggie-packed, anti-oxidant-laden, spicy and protein-infused side dish. The meaty texture of roasted cauliflower will once again impress the meat lover at the table. Serve with a salad as dinner, or as a side with any white flakey fish.
