Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Mix 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil, half of the garlic, oregano and 1½ tsp (7 mL) salt.

Tie chicken legs together with kitchen twine. Place chicken, breast-side up, in roasting pan.

Step 4
Meanwhile, add cauliflower to food processor and pulse until rice-sized pieces form. Remove 1 tsp (5 mL) finely grated zest from remaining lime, set aside. Heat remaining olive oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add cauliflower "couscous", remaining garlic, turmeric and remaining salt. Cover and cook 2 to 3 min., or until cauliflower softens. Stir in reserved lime zest, peas and parsley.
