Add drained chickpeas and 1/2 cup water to pot. Cover and cook over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding additional water if mixture becomes too dry.

In a separate pan, combine cauliflower and 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook over medium high heat, stirring carefully every minute or so until cauliflower is tender (approx. 7 minutes). Uncover cauliflower and boil off any excess liquid. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice mixture. Combine cauliflower with chickpea mixture and add chopped cilantro.
