EARTH ANGEL VEGAN’S SWEET AND SOUR CHICKPEAS AND VEGETABLES are a game changer. You will love this dish! It has all the flavors you love from you favorite Chinese restaurant without animal products or oil. It is a super tasty and healthy meal. It comes together very quickly and is a show stopper on the plate! Give it a try.
4-6 cups cooked white or brown rice (I make a big batch in my rice cooker)
2 cups broccoli florets (fresh steamed or frozen)
1/2 cup vegetable broth… plus a few tablespoons if needed
1 15 oz can of chickpeas drained and rinsed
2 cups pineapple chunks (frozen or canned in juice)
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 white onion diced (or 2-3 green onions white and green part)
1 red bell pepper diced
1 handful of match stick carrots
1 small can of chopped water chestnuts (optional)
2 cloves garlic minced
2 teaspoons fresh ginger (minced or paste)
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon of cornstarch
4 Tablespoons red sweet chili sauce (I use Wildtree Thai Chili Sauce)
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Put your rice on to cook! Prepare frozen or fresh broccoli to steam!
In a sauce pan add onion, carrot, mushrooms, bell pepper, chickpeas, and pineapple and start to cook over medium high heat (kinda like stir frying). There is enough moisture to keep things from sticking and the sugars in the pineapple with help things start to brown. Add a few tablespoons of veggie broth at a time if veggies start to stick. After veggies get semi soft add garlic and ginger and water chestnuts (if using) and the rest of the ingredients except the vegetable broth and cornstarch. Mix the cornstarch and veggie broth together in a bowl or cup. After adding all the ingredients and brining to a simmer… stir in the veggie broth and cornstarch slurry and increase the heat… the mixture will thicken nicely when it comes to a boil. When it comes to a boil and thickens… take off the heat and serve on top of the rice with steamed broccoli garnish!
Wildtree Sweet and Spicy Thai Chili Sauce is amazing in recipes and as a dipping sauce!
