Steamed Sweet Potato, Broccoli, and Bean Salad

“I wanted to bring sweet potatoes to work for lunch, but didn't want plain old potatoes cooked in the microwave. So I threw this together. Would be good hot or cold. The recipe should make a hearty lunch for two (or three?) -- or serve as a side dish. I used chickpeas but black or pinto beans would probably be just as good.”
