So you want something warm, easy and healthy for dinner that doesn’t take too long? This is a quick and savory dish from the cookbook The Dinner Doctor by Anne Byrn, who brought us the popular Cake Doctor cookbooks.
I initially decided to try this recipe because it looked healthy. Broccoli, chickpeas and that trendy, protein-rich seed quinoa. Yeah, OK, I’ll try it. Ho hum.
I first made this for a church extracurricular activity.* I didn’t add the avocado because the salad was going to sit in a cooler for a few hours. Happily, it was a hit even without it. I added avocado to the leftovers at home, and yum, it was even better.
I found this recipe on eatingwell.com when I was looking for healthy vegetarian options for soon-to-arrive guests. It met the requirements: Protein, check. Interesting flavor profile, check. Served cold, check (forecasts of 90-degree days).
