Drizzle over oil, cayenne pepper, pinch of salt and pepper, ensuring each floret is well coated.  Bake the cauliflower for 35 minutes or until browned and tender. Remove from the oven and place aside to cool. Drain the chickpeas and rinse thoroughly in a colander.

To make the dressing, combine the cashews, lemon juice, water, crushed garlic, cumin, cayenne and salt and pepper into a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.  Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve!
