Chickpeas and broccoli are two of my favourite things . So put them together in the same dish and it’s sure to be a winner, right? Well, kind of :) I’ve flicked through Vegan With A Vengeance so many times and paused at this recipe and then decided that I’ll make it another day and moved on. I keep getting put off by the blurb before the recipe where Isa admits “it is a little bland”. Hmmm, that’s not really enticing me. Anyway, I saw it on Eat'n Veg'n and Don't Get Mad Get Vegan recently and it got mixed reviews so I thought I should just finally try it for myself.
When it came out of the oven it wasn’t the most appealing dish. I served it over quinoa with some greens in Mustard Tahini Sesame Sauce which I’m not sure was the best combination. When I put it in front of Wee G I was not greeted with a joyful face. It seemed kind of dry and stodgy, but I forgot to set the timer when I put it in the oven so I think it might have been a little overcooked. The first few bites I wasn’t too sure, but by the end of it I thought it was pretty yummy!! I suppose it’s the taste that matters so I will be making it again, and trying not to overcook it this time :)
