½ cup (125 ml) pecan pieces

2 tbsp (30 ml) maple syrup

1 bag Arctic Gardens broccoli florets

2 tbsp (30 ml) canola oil

2 tbsp (30 ml) cider vinegar

1 tbsp (15 ml) Dijon mustard

1 19-oz can (540 ml) chick peas, drained and rinsed

Salt and ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. In a pan on medium heat, roast the pecans by stirring frequently for 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add 2 tbps (30 ml) of maple syrup and continue cooking for about 5 minutes so that the syrup sticks to the pecans and caramelizes them. Transfer to a plate lined with parchment paper.
  3. Let cool and break up with a knife.
  4. In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil and cook the broccoli for 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water. Set aside.
  6. In a large bowl, whip together the oil, vinegar, mustard and 1 tbsp (15 ml) of the maple syrup.
  7. Add the chick peas, diced apple, green onion, parsley and cooled broccoli. Season to taste.
  8. Garnish with caramelized pecans and serve as a main dish.
