Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onion, ginger, garlic, and all spices. Sauté for 3-4 minutes.
Add broccoli florets and vegetable broth. Fry until the broccoli is tender but not soft, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the sauce: In a medium bowl, combine water, soy sauce, vinegar, maple syrup, and cornstarch. Whisk.
Pour the sauce in the pan and add chickpeas.
Bring to a boil until the sauce simmers. Fry for a further few minutes.
Taste and adjust seasonings. Add more salt/pepper/cayenne pepper if needed.
Serve alone or with cooked rice. Enjoy!
