To serve

  • 1½ cups cooked pearled barley

  • Cut broccoli head in half. Slice off the side of each half to create a ½ inch steak. Combine the 2 steaks, and the remaining florets in a large bowl.
  • Whisk together olive oil, garlic, and broccoli seasonings. Pour over broccoli and toss until well coated. Transfer broccoli to a parchment lined baking sheet. Arrange using about ⅔ of the sheet so that the broccoli is not touching.

  • Immediately when the chickpeas come out of the oven toss them with the spices in a medium bowl.
