Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1.5-2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • ½ cup soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • ¼ cup water

Chickpea Bowl

  • ½ cup chopped green onion
  • 2 cans chickpeas
  • 16 oz bag frozen broccoli (or 4 cups fresh florets)
  • 1.5 cups rice


Teriyaki Sauce

  • In a small saucepan, heat the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, vinegar, maple syrup, and water.
  • Once it comes to a boil, take a small amount of the liquid out and whisk it together with 1.5 tbsp corn starch. Add it back to the saucepan after it's whisked together preventing any lumps.
  • Continue to heat until it thickens to your liking, but if stays too thin, repeat the step with an additional ½ tbsp of corn starch. Then remove from heat.
  • Stir in sesame seeds, and the sauce is complete.

Chickpea Bowl

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. If using fresh broccoli, use 425°F.
  • Line a baking sheet and spread broccoli florets (fresh or frozen on the sheet).
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • While it's baking, mix together the canned chickpeas, green onion, and teriyaki sauce in a skillet. Heat on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Cook the rice in a rice cooker, or boil in a small saucepan for about 18 minutes. Remove from heat and leave sitting for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Assemble the bowl. Use about ¾ cup rice, ¼ of the chickpeas, and ¼ of the broccoli in a bowl. Optional: sprinkle sesame seeds over the chickpeas.
  • Enjoy. Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days in air tight containers.
