Asian Noodle and Chickpea Stir-fry

The easiest stir-fry ever! You can add in your favorite veggies, or what you have on hand, making this the perfect frugal meal. Quick, made in less than 30 minutes, and vegan!

I was not paid for this post. I received free product to review, but all opinions, text, images, and recipe are my own.

Stir-fries are perfect for quick weeknight meals. They're easy to make, take less than 30 minutes from start to finish, and make great use of fresh vegetables. But what really sets this stir-fry apart from the others, is that it's loaded with protein, without any meat at all.

How is that possible? Because I've added two of my favorite vegan protein sources, chickpeas, and quinoa noodles.

Quinoa noodles are my new favorite find. While I love my veggie noodles, sometimes you just need a comforting meal of good old pasta noodles. I grew up eating a lot of spaghetti and macaroni & cheese, so pasta brings back warm childhood memories for me.

While my tastes were more simple back then, I prefer flavors and textures that are a bit more complex now. When it comes to noodles though, it doesn't matter what type of cuisine you cook them with, they're still comforting and satisfying.

Asian Noodle Stir-fry


The noodles are from TresOmega Nutrition, a company that makes their pastas with a unique blend of organic quinoa, a nutrient packed superfood, organic amaranth, an ancient grain rich in vitamins and minerals, and organic rice.

Their products are gluten-free, corn-free, and certified organic, and doesn’t come out mushy when you cook it, like other brands of gluten-free pastas can.

Even though there isn't any meat in this dish, it's still loaded with protein. This recipe contains a total of 24 grams of protein from the TresOmega Nutrition spaghetti, and 21 grams from the chickpeas. That's a lot of protein!

Combine that with broccoli, red and green bell peppers, and onion, wrapped in an amazingly tasty Asian inspired sauce, and you have a satisfying and comforting pasta meal you wont soon forget.
