Directions

Roast the broccoli: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Add the broccoli florets, oil and a large pinch of salt to a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Toss to combine, and spread out in a single layer. Roast for 20 minutes, stir and roast until the broccoli is browning, 10 minutes more. Remove from the oven, and set aside to cool. 

Make the dressing: Add the tahini and 3 tablespoons water to a small bowl, and stir until smooth. Add the lemon juice, vinegar, tamari and garlic, stir to combine and season with salt to taste. 

Assemble the salad: Add the roasted broccoli, chickpeas, dill, parsley and cilantro to a large bowl, and toss to combine. Divide between 2 bowls, drizzle with dressing and serve immediately.

Cook's Note

The broccoli stems can be peeled and steamed as a side dish or used in soups or stir-fries. Or add them to your green juice for a spicy, nutritional boost.
