Veri Veri Teriyaki Chickpeas and rice is one of those dishes that is really popular in party's, a lot of catering companies have this dish available, Elegant Touch Catering was one of the first companies to ever introduce veri veri teriyaki to the market and ever since is a dish that makes you say, I need to make this at my house!! My husband said it several times too, as if he was surprised that a meatless dish could taste so good, he normally only likes food with meat, so its pretty rare to see him eating something without it, I have try so many times to make him eat vegetarian foods but there is no way that man will eat them, unlit he eat veri veri teriyaki.  We enjoyed this easy vegetarian recipe so much we went back for THIRDS, i first had this amazing dish from a patty at a catering service in tirunelveli ans let me just say it was so good!!,.  I kid you not.  I barely had enough leftover to photograph for this post. since we all love it so much, we want to share this amazing recipe from the TravelerInfoHub.

HERE'S ALL IT TAKES

Feeds 4

  • 4 cups cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • 1/2 cup Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Szechuan sauce or hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 cups cooked brown rice
  • pineapple salsa for topping

In a large frying pan, marinate the chickpeas in the teriyaki sauce, hot sauce, and sugar for 5 to 15 minutes.  Turn heat on to medium.  Stir regularly until most of the marinade has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.

Spoon over cooked rice and top with salsa. CHOW DOWN.

The pineapple salsa could be something as simple as chunk pineapple, finely chopped red onion, chopped cilantro and lime juice to taste.
