Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Cut out and discard the core of the cauliflower; cut into small florets. Peel the carrots; grate on the large side of a box grater. Pit and roughly chop the dates. Halve and pit the avocado. Using a spoon, remove the avocado from the skin, then thinly slice. Place in a bowl; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Roast the chickpeas & cauliflower:
2 Roast the chickpeas & cauliflower:

Spread the chickpeas onto a paper towel-lined sheet pan. Using a second layer of paper towels, gently pat or roll the chickpeas to thoroughly dry; discard the paper towels and any loose chickpea skins. Add the cauliflower florets to the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the dukkah; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 23 to 25 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender when pierced with a fork and the chickpeas are golden brown and crispy (be careful, as the chickpeas may pop as they roast). Remove from the oven.
