1 TB                            cumin

1 TB                            chili powder

1 tsp                            cayenne pepper (optional)

1 TB                            oregano, dried

2 tsp                            kosher salt


Lime Crema*

6 oz                             Greek yogurt, plain, nonfat

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In large bowl, toss garbanzo beans with 1 TB olive oil & half the cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and salt; mix well. In a separate large bowl, toss cauliflower with 1 TB olive oil & the other half of cumin, chili powder, cayenne, salt, and all of the oregano; mix well. Place both on separate baking sheets and roast until crispy, about 30 minutes (this may vary).

Meanwhile, combine crema ingredients. Set aside. *You can substitute lime crema for light sour cream – add fresh lime juice for an extra zing!

Heat olive oil in sauté pan and cook zucchini until tender. Warm corn tortillas in oven for 5 minutes (preferably the last 5 minutes of cooking).
