  • Add the cauliflower and carrots to the pot first. They will take the longest to cook.
  • Don't add the peas until the very end. If they are added too soon, or sit in the sauce simmering they will lose their bright green color.
  • If your cauliflower isn't as tender as you like it, cover and cook an additional 5 minutes.
  • Using canned chickpeas keeps the cooking time down. Be sure to drain and rinse the chickpeas before adding them to the pot.
