I made this meal for dinner last weekend on a whim, and it was so good that I planned the ingredients to make it again this week for the blog.

Normally, I’m all about tofu in stir fry recipes, but it definitely requires a little more time and effort.

I wanted to create a recipe that was practical and easy, and not time consuming.

How to make 30 minute chickpea stir fry:

Ready from start to finish in just half an hour, and easy enough to make on any night, busy or not.

I have been on a chickpea kick lately (case in point: my chickpea salad sandwiches.)

I forgot just how versatile they are. They adapt so well to pretty much any flavor and I love them for a quick and cheap protein.

I also threw in some veggies: red bell pepper and mushrooms.

You can add whatever veggies you have on hand and it would work too!

I also love broccoli with garlic sauce and stir fry vegetables!

Just check out my guide for What are the best vegetables to put in stir fry?

The most important part is the fresh garlic and ginger, which you will use along with my 3 ingredient homemade stir fry sauce.

I’ll say it over and over because it’s so important: don’t leave it out!

Fresh garlic + fresh ginger + 3 ingredient homemade stir fry sauce = magic.

As simple as that. Those three steps, plus chickpeas and veggies of choice and dinner is perfection!

I use a rice cooker to get that perfect fluffy white rice that you would get when you order takeout.

Honestly, my rice cooker is my best friend these days. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend it. It was the best $30 I spent and I use it so much!

I use it every week for everything from stir fry recipes to mexican recipes. I love not having to babysit the rice, and it cooks perfectly every time!

Fluffy white rice + thick stir fry sauce over fresh veggies and chickpeas. YES please!
