  • 1 large head cauliflower (separated into florets)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (plus 1/4 cup or as needed)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • ½ small red onion (cut vertically into slivers)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ½ cup fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano (chopped)
  • 1 can (15-ounce) chickpeas (drained and rinsed)

  • ½ cup kalamata olives (pitted and halved )
  • 3 tablespoons capers (drained)
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
