I try to eat legumes at least 3 times a week and chickpeas are my favorite one. Although I could live on hummus or falafel, I'm always trying new recipes and one day I tried to use them instead of the rice or noodles I usually used to make my stir-fry recipes and this amazing dish came to life!
I use different veggies every time I make it, depending on the season, what I've got on hand or what I'm craving (love my vegan food so much!). As I always say, don't be afraid to change our recipes, especially the savory ones, they work most of the time.
- Feel free to use rice, pasta, or any other cereal or legume instead of the chickpeas.
- You can also use other sauces like tamari or soy sauce, sweet and sour sauce, or any other you've got on hand.
