    Ingredients:

    • 1 cup cooked chickpeas (canned or cooked from dry)
    • 2 cups mixed vegetables (bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, snap peas, etc.), chopped
    • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten-free option)
    • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave nectar
    • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
    • A pinch of red pepper flakes (adjust to your spice preference)
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • Cooked brown rice or quinoa for serving
    • Fresh cilantro and sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
    Instructions:

    1. Prepare the Sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, maple syrup (or agave nectar), grated ginger, and red pepper flakes. Set this sauce aside.

    2. Stir-Fry: Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and sliced onions. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes until the onions become translucent.

    3. Add Vegetables: Add the mixed vegetables to the skillet. Stir-fry for another 3-5 minutes until they start to become tender but still crisp.

    4. Add Chickpeas: Add the cooked chickpeas to the skillet and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

    5. Combine Sauce: Pour the sauce over the vegetables and chickpeas. Stir to coat evenly. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken slightly.

    6. Season: Taste the stir-fry and season with salt and pepper as needed. Adjust the spiciness with more red pepper flakes if desired.

    7. Serve: Serve the chickpea and vegetable stir-fry over cooked brown rice or quinoa. Garnish with fresh cilantro and sesame seeds for added flavor and presentation.
    This plant-based stir-fry is not only tasty but also eco-friendly, using fresh vegetables and legumes. It pairs perfectly with your eco-loving products from your website to promote a sustainable lifestyle. Enjoy this delicious and environmentally-conscious meal!
