Peanut Sauce Roasted Chickpeas

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 wlEmoticon winkingsmile7 Peanut Sauce Roasted Chickpeas  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.

Unfortunately, my favorite bean is not very photogenic. Oh well, I still love them.

    Broccoli and chickpeas are my favorite combo. And I’m sriracha-obsessed. The stuff really snazzes up any savory meal. Oh, I have a couple piles of mail/forms/random paper that I need to get through myself. Good luck!

    I love getting kids meals at places!
    I was out shopping in the rain too– I was surprised at how many people were still crowding the malls and everywhere else despite the crappy weather. I guess we all have the same idea

    Recipe looks really good but BOO for me having no peanut flour! I have no trader joes near me and cant seem to find it anywhere else! I am going to chicago for New Years, and I have to get it then, because there is a trader joes in the city!
