Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

A crisp Pinot Blanc will sing when paired with the spicy vegetables.

Beer Pairings

The balance of hops and malt with a crisp, dry finish makes an American Pale Lager the perfect contrast to the spicy flavors in this dish.

TK Table Talk:

When invited to be a guest for dinner in someone’s home in Korea, it is customary to bring a gift wrapped in gold paper and handed to the most elder host with your right hand or both hands, never just the left hand, which is considered rude. What do you consider rude?

What To Do:

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place one oven rack in broil position (top of oven) and one rack in middle of oven.

5. Finish Dish: Increase oven temperature to broil. Remove baking sheet from oven and pour sauce over cauliflower mixture. Stir with a rubber spatula to coat all the pieces. Place on top rack of oven and broil for 5 to 8 minutes (stirring if needed).

To Serve: Divide cauliflower between two bowls and garnish with reserved scallions.

Pro Tip:

Try grilling your cauliflower instead! Grill for 15-20 minutes, place in a bowl with the chickpeas and sauce and stir to coat.
Spice it Up!: Add an additional ½ teaspoon sriracha to bump up the heat and flavor.


Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos with @terraskitchen and #terraskitchen.
