Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Toss broccoli with cooking oil, balsamic vinegar, red pepper flakes, and some salt and pepper. Spread out on a sheet pan and roast for 20 minutes, shaking pan halfway through cooking.

  3. Heat a skillet or saute pan over medium heat. Add olive oil and then onions. Saute until onions are very soft, 4 to 5 minutes. 

  4. Add tomatoes, white wine, garlic, artichoke hearts, beans, and paprika to the pan, sauteing for another 3 to 5 minutes, until wine has mostly evaporated. Finish with lemon juice and parsley.

  5. If quinoa was made ahead, reheat in the microwave. 

  6. Serve chickpea saute over quinoa. Enjoy with roasted broccoli.

Made using cod, really enjoyed the subtle but delicious flavor of the sauce. Had to add flour to sauce to achieve some degree of thickening. Broccoli roasted with the balsamic seemed to keep it moist. Super meal!!

Yummy. Made with cod and followed the recipe as directed. The sauce was quite runny so added some flour to thicken.

Really nice and easy. 4 year old ate it all (she snacks on capers though). Just boiled the broccoli to keep it simple and ensure 4 year old would eat it.

I did a Paleo/Original version. I used couscous because I originally was going to make the Paleo version and didn't have quinoa. I suddenly wanted some grain. Plus I didn't have the spinach so I made roasted Brussels sprouts which was really nice. I think I could have waited a bit for a more golden fish, but other than that, I really liked it. I did do the artichokes and capers, with lemon and garlic. Yummy. Next time, I'll make it according to the recipe - I think the spinach would have been a nice touch in the sauce.

Very good. And it was easy since we made the quinoa earlier this week. Gluten free flour burned a bit and then didn't thicken too well for the sauce but still tasty.

I thought this was really good. Subbed rice for quinoa since I just don't think we're a quinoa family. We used cod. I put it in the pan too early so one side didn't get very nicely brown but the other did! :)
