Test Kitchen Tip
Freekeh [FREE-kah] is a high-fiber whole grain with a large concentration of vitamins and minerals. If you can’t find freekeh, farro is a great substitute.
Preheat oven to 425° with racks in top and bottom thirds and 2 baking sheets inside.
Toss broccolini, cauliflower, onions, garlic, and lemon halves with 2 Tbsp. oil, and season with salt and pepper; divide between preheated baking sheets. Roast vegetables and lemons until tender, about 20 minutes; transfer to a bowl and juice lemons.
Meanwhile, cook freekeh according to package directions. Toss freekeh, spinach, and parsley with roasted vegetables.
Cut tofu into 1x2-inch pieces; toss with cornstarch and paprika, then season with salt and pepper.
Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a nonstick skillet over high. Cook tofu in batches until golden, 2 minutes per side; drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
Whisk together remaining 6 Tbsp. oil, lemon juice, and honey; toss with freekeh mixture and season with salt and pepper. Top servings with cheese and hazelnuts.
