I would like to call this lunch, “Veggie Burger Parmesan” – I cooked up broccoli with marinara sauce and topped it with a veggie burger and parmesan cheese. Yum!
I was out in the very violent rain Christmas shopping for most of the afternoon. Well, Christmas shopping and restocking my favorite protein powder supply But that is a necessity! Kinda.
Anyways, since I knew I wouldn’t feel like cooking dinner I stopped at Pei Wei to get food.
I ordered Ben the sesame chicken with brown rice and got myself a kids meal that is not nearly as photogenic (so apparently, I didn’t even snap a pic of it!).
But, I knew a kid’s meal wasn’t going to cut it for my hunger so dinner Round 2 was Roasted Chickpeas in a Peanut Sauce.
2 Tb. maple syrup
1 Tb. soy sauce
1-2 Tb. peanut flour (or peanut butter if you don’t have flour)
Squeeze of Sriracha to taste
1 can of chickpeas, rinsed
Mix all ingredients and roast at 400 degrees until toasted to your liking. I left mine in about 35 minutes, tossing a few times during cooking.
I roasted mine with broccoli for some greens and bulk.
Unfortunately, my favorite bean is not very photogenic. Oh well, I still love them.
Now I must attempt to go through the pile of mail that I’ve been avoiding! Anyone want to come over and help? I’ll pay you in chocolate covered Joe Joe’s – which are on the menu for dessert
