Meatless Monday with Vegan Hawaiian Chickpea Teriyaki

Welcome (back) to the Miratel blog for another edition of our Meatless Monday vegan recipe series. We took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

If you are not a full-time vegan, it might seem daunting to make a vegan meal that is satisfying and won’t leave you missing meat and our weekly recipe share aims to accomplish just that.

You may think that a vegan meal takes longer to plan and cook, but that doesn’t have to be the case. That is why we’re sharing with you a simple, quick, and flavour packed dish that is perfect for any weeknight meal. Today’s recipe is for vegan Hawaiian chickpea teriyaki that will leave you thinking how have I never thought of this before? This great recipe (and idea) comes from Happy Herbivore, an amazing resource for vegans.

Ingredients:

  • 15 ounces chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tbsp szechuan sauce
  • 1 tbsp raw sugar (optional)
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup salsa

Instructions

  1. Combine chickpeas, teriyaki, Szechuan sauce, and sugar in a large frying pan. Allow everything to sit and ‘marinate’ at least 5 minutes (the longer the better). Turn heat to medium and cook, stirring regulary or until most of the liquid has absorbed, about 10 minutes. Spoon chickpeas over rice and top with fresh pineapple or mango salsa.
  2. Chef’s Note: If you want to create your own pineapple and mango salsa, mix equal parts chopped pineapple and mango with minced red onion, fresh cilantro, and lime juice to taste.

Don’t be intimidated by the idea of making your own pineapple and mango salsa – it is quick and simple. This would also be a great way to use left over pineapple. Also, this salsa is something that you can use on other dishes, if you have leftovers, like salads or tacos.

This recipe for vegan Hawaiian chickpea teriyaki will serve 2 and has 505 calories per serving making it a healthier weeknight option. You could easily expand upon this recipe to serve for a crowd; as it would make a great, and stress free, addition to any buffet as a vegan offering.
