  1. Heat oven to 500F (260C) degrees.
  2. Spread cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and garbanzo beans out onto two sheet pans and cover tightly with foil, and ‘steam’ for 6 minutes in the oven.
  3. Remove the foil and toss with first part of marinade (you’ll have to divide between the two pans) and roast for another 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Once the veggies are done roasting, toss with second part of marinade and chopped cilantro immediately out of the oven and then salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Heat up leftover rice from Monday (you can use the reheat setting on your microwave or just heat in a saucepan). Top rice with roasted veggies and beans.
