Well, this made up for my not so great things I made for Super Bowl (in my mind). This is something Josh and I both enjoy and it’s easy and quick for a tasty weeknight meal. I used the oil free teriyaki recipe I made for my noodle bowl last week and stir fried chickpeas with broccoli, carrots, baby bella mushrooms, scallions, and spinach then mixed the teriyaki in to top rice. I cooked some brown basmati rice in my new rice cooker (it’s amazing!) and it came together really quickly. You can use whatever veggies you have on hand, fresh or frozen, to make a stir fry.
