Chickpea and Broccoli Casserole

It has been a while since I posted.  I had gotten out of the habit of cooking at home, sad to say.  Well, I'm back with a vengeance... with Vegan With A Vengeance, that is.  Tonight's new recipe is Chickpea and Broccoli Casserole.  From what I can gather from the ingredients, it not only will taste great hot, but it will also make some great sandwiches.  So, anyway, I'm trying it.

Looks pretty good, I think.  I made the spicy version, adding onion powder, thyme and a  few red pepper flakes.  I think if I make it again, I will puree the chickpeas in my food processor.  I will also chop the broccoli a bit finer, as well.  That way, the consistency will hold moisture a bit better, and the final product will not be quite so dry.  I do like the taste of it, for sure.  I am thinking perhaps adding some water chestnuts, or perhaps a few chopped walnuts?  It is pretty filling, and I think one serving of this is pretty much a complete meal.
