Quinoa, Broccoli and Chickpea Side

Here's a really yummy side dish if you happen to have some leftover quinoa like I did. I had about a cup of cooked quinoa in the fridge. I decided to roast a head of broccoli as well as a can of chickpeas and toss it all together with some feta cheese. Sooooo good.

1 cup cooked quinoa
1 head broccoli florets, tossed with some olive oil salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and roasted at  425 for 30 minutes
1 can chickpeas*, rinsed and tossed with some olive oil, turmeric, cumin, salt, and a bit of cayenne pepper and roasted at 400 for 40 minutes (stir and check after 20 minutes)

Toss it all together and mix in some feta cheese.

If you're lucky you can serve it up with some pretty glamorous salad tongs like the ones you see in the picture above. Just got these from a dear friend for my B-day.

* be forewarned: roasted chickpeas are addictive!!
