Warm Broccoli and Chickpea Salad

I needed some easy recipes to make this week since it’s been non stop busy, day after day! A lot has been going on and I will admit to feeling quite overwhelmed at times.

Between working on a new ebook, running to auditions, planning a trip to Japan (in less than a month, yay!), taking lifestyle photos for a home appliance company and working on my blog, I’ve been left with little time to relax.

But no matter how busy life gets, I always prefer creating meals at home over getting food delivered to our house.

Making a warm broccoli and chickpea salad only takes 15 minutes and is a powerhouse of nutrients – something a tired body and brain needs!

The hardest thing about putting this salad together is steaming the broccoli – yeah – it’s that easy.

You’re basically tossing a bunch of vitamin packed ingredients together and finishing with a good sprinkle of freshly grated parmesan cheese and a drizzle of honey, mustard and red wine vinaigrette.

Yummy!
