Easy Chickpea Vegetable Stir Fry Recipe

It is a new year and that means many of us are making resolutions. This year, I made some goals in the following areas: business/blog, personal, and family. I like setting goals because they keep me focused and motivated. I try to not to make too many so I will actually achieve them! I am all about setting realistic goals. I want to succeed:)

Healthy eating is always a popular resolution and it is on my list this year. I am trying to include more vegetables into my diet and into our family meals. I kicked off the new year by making Easy Chickpea Vegetable Stir Fry. I love making stir fry because it is easy, healthy, and a great way to sneak a variety of vegetables into one meal!

Caleb is usually a good eater, but vegetables are sometimes tricky. One day he will devour his veggies and the next day he will turn up his nose. Gotta love kids:) I keep trying to introduce a variety of vegetables so he can discover his favorites. I love making stir fry because he will usually eat at least one or two of the veggies I use.

For this stir fry, I used: broccoli, carrots, peppers, mushrooms, and sugar snap peas. In the winter, it is sometimes hard to find quality produce so I mixed Kroger’s frozen veggies with some fresh produce. Caleb loves the crinkle cut carrots, he calls them gold doubloons. They are treasures, just like in Jake and the Neverland Pirates:)

I added some chickpeas to the veggies for an easy boost of protein. Our stir fry was colorful and ready to go in under 30 minutes, making it a great weeknight meal.

I served our Easy Chickpea Vegetable Stir Fry over a bed of Kroger’s Tri-Color Quinoa. It is pretty and adds even more protein!

We started the year off right with this Easy Chickpea Vegetable Stir Fry. It was a hit at our dinner table so I will be making it again! I love veggie loaded meals, especially when they are super simple!

  • For the Sauce:
  • 2/3 cup Kroger Lite soy sauce or Tamari sauce
  • 1/2 cup Kroger vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup Rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons garlic chile sauce
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • For the Stir Fry:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 12 oz package Kroger frozen broccoli cuts
  • 1 12 oz package Kroger frozen crinkle cut carrots
  • 1 8 oz package fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cups sugar snap peas

  • 1 small yellow pepper sliced, seeds removed
  • 1 8 oz can Kroger sliced water chestnuts
  • 1 15 oz can Kroger chickpeas, rinsed and drained

  • 1. First, make the sauce. In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, broth, vinegar, sesame oil, brown sugar, garlic chile sauce, ginger, and corn starch. Whisk together and set aside.
  • 2. In a large skillet or wok, heat the olive oil over high heat. Add the broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, peas, and peppers. Cook for 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender, but still crisp.

  • Note-if you need the recipe to be gluten-free make sure you use Tamari sauce instead of soy sauce. You can also serve the stir fry with rice or noodles.

  1. This stir fry looks delicious! My husband and I are newly vegan and this dish looks like a great one to add to our repertoire. 🙂 Little victory for today was two loads of laundry, deep cleaning the kitchen and baking vegan pumpkin banana muffins to store in the freezer 😉

  2. My victory was to pack a healthy lunch the night before so I’m ready to walk out the door in the morning without just grabbing something!

    My new chow mein! My husband and I both love chow mein but once I became vegetarian I knew I wasn’t going to be making it. I’ve been looking for recipes but could never find anything I thought was similar until this!!
    Pretty much followed the recipe except used avocado oil, liquid aminos, coconut sugar, no ginger or chestnuts, celery instead of carrots and fresh veggies. We BOTH love it, that doesn’t happen very often!

    I’ve recently tried to feed my family at least an 80% plant based diet so I’ve been searching for recipes from Two Peas …and WOW! They’re all soooo good! My husband ate three servings of this and loved every bite! I loved it too. Maria, you are a genius at making healthy, yet totally delicious food. We love your toast toppings! My husband wants me to tell you about the toast I grew up with, PB topped with fresh garden tomatoes. We love it!
