Warm winter salad made of chickpeas, broccoli, brussels sprouts and onions

Warm Winter Salad

It’s easy during cold winter months to turn to comfort food, but often, comfort food equates to unhealthy options.

Salads to me are a summer food so to resolve that problem I took some of my favorite vegetables and created something that is both satisfying and healthy.

This is something you can top with your favorite protein.
