I love this dinner idea because any veggies will work.  So you can use up leftovers in the fridge.  I served mine over cooked quinoa, but you can eat it plain too.  Serving over brown rice is another option if you want to stretch the meal out more.

If you like a little more heat, you can add a jalapeno at the same time you add the bell peppers.

Easy Broccoli Stir Fry

If you are looking a quick meal idea, this Easy Broccoli Stir Fry is it.  I was inspired to make this recipe by my Thai Peanut Sauce recipe.  I thought it would go really well with the broccoli since I sometimes put broccoli in my Peanut Noodle Stir Fry recipe.

I slightly tweaked the peanut sauce for this recipe.  It came out pretty yummy!

Sweet Potato Chickpea Stir Fry

I am super excited to share this Sweet Potato Chickpea Stir Fry recipe since it contains many of my favorite foods! I could seriously live on sweet potatoes and chickpeas. This recipe is great for so many reasons.  It makes A LOT of food, so it’s great if you batch cook and freeze some meals.  It’s also very inexpensive to make.

This sweet potato chickpea stir fry is vegan and gluten free.  It’s also very versatile.  I think you can add other veggies in here as well.  I think red bell peppers or kale would be nice additions.

I like to make large batch recipes like this and then freeze in serving sized portions. Then I can just grab and thaw exactly what I need, instead of thawing out this gigantic container and only using a little.

Super Easy Black Eyed Peas

Okay, so I know I am late with the black eyed pea dish, but better late than never.  Here are some Super Easy Black Eyed Peas for you.  I know traditionally black eyed peas are eaten on New Years Day for good luck.  In fact, we did eat this dish on New Years Day.  I just never anticipated it would be good enough to blog about.  It was awesome.
