Moroccan (Inspired) Roasted Cauliflower & Farro Salad

Moroccan (Inspired) Roasted Cauliflower & Farro Salad

Creating this salad brought me back to why Im so inspired by eating a plant forward diet. 

Simple vegetables can be entirely transformed by adding a few spices, good quality olive oil, fresh herbs and some time in the oven. 

I so enjoyed bringing this beautiful dish to life but I enjoyed eating it even more. 

She is just as pretty as she is delicious! 



Large Baking Sheet

Mixing Bowl 








1 cauliflower head, cut into even florets 

3 tbsp olive oil 

1.5 tsp harissa 

1/2 tsp turmeric 

1/2 tsp coriander 

1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt 

1/2 tsp pepper 



4 cups arugula 

1 cup cooked farro or grain of choice 

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and pat dried 

6 Medjool dates , de-pitted and rough chopped 

1/2 cup slivered almonds 



1/2 cup vegan feta , crumbled 

Extra chopped parsley for topping 

Extra Chopped mint leaves for topping 



1/4 cup olive oil 

2 tbsp fresh parsley , chopped 

4 mint leaves, chopped

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tsp apple cider vinegar  

1 tsp lemon or orange zest 

1-2 tsp maple syrup ( preference ) 

3/4 tsp ground cumin 

1/2 tsp sea salt 


Preheat oven to 425 F and place a large rimmed baking sheet directly into the oven to warm. 

In a large mixing bowl add your chopped cauliflower, olive oil, harissa, coriander, turmeric, garlic powder , salt, and pepper. Mix well. 

Carefully spread your cauliflower out evenly onto your hot baking sheet and return to the oven. 

Roast for 25-30 minutes flipping halfway through. Cauliflower is done when it has begun to crisp up around the edges.

While your cauliflower is roasting, prepare your salad and dressing. 

Add your arugula , farro, chickpeas, dates, and almonds into the large mixing bowl you prepared your cauliflower in. No need to rinse, but you can if you would like. 

Whisk all dressing ingredients into a small bowl and then drizzle desired amount of dressing onto salad mix. Mix well. 

When your cauliflower is finished, allow it to slightly cool and then add desired amount ( still warm) over your dressed salad. 

Sprinkle on your feta and lightly toss. 

Add any more desired herbs , dressing, or toppings of choice! 

Enjoy !
