Roasted Broccoli + Chickpeas

Do you roast broccoli? What about chickpeas? If you don't, you should start. Both are very roastable. You might have roasted chickpeas straight into snack territory before, but if you stop about halfway they'll be toasty on the outside and creamy on the inside, perfect for adding to salads. Roasted broccoli gets so nutty and crispy any bad broccoli memories you've been harboring will be instantly erased. This week I discovered that the two can do even more when sharing a sheet pan, namely make you dinner in one fell swoop. Roasted together the results are everything January should be - virtuous, warming, and restorative. All that and there's only one pan to clean up. If one of your new year's resolutions is to dirty fewer dishes this is a good place to start.

Ingredients

  • 1 head broccoli or broccolini
  • 1 15 oz. can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 radish, thinly shaved
  • 6 oz feta, crumbled (see this post for my suggestions on scouting out good feta)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Lemon wedge
  • Salt + pepper

Prep

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Trim broccoli and cut into small florets
  • In a bowl toss together broccoli, chickpeas, olive oil, salt and pepper until well coated
  • Spread on a baking sheet and pop in the oven to roast
  • At the 15 minute mark, use a spatula to toss
  • Return to oven and roast for another 15 minutes
  • When done chickpeas will be browned and toasted on the outside but still creamy on the inside; broccoli stems will be easily pierced with a fork and florets will be crispy
  • Transfer broccoli and chickpeas to a serving platter and scatter with radish and feta
  • Garnish with a squeeze of lemon and serve
