  • Whisk together the sauce mixture.
  • Heat a large saute pan, and pour the sauce mixture into pan. Bring the sauce mixture to a boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring every minute or so until it starts to thicken. (You will know it has thickened when you scrape the pan and it pulls away from the pan)
  • When the sauce thickens, add the rinsed + drained chickpeas into the pot. Stir to coat the chickpeas.
  • Serve over steamed broccoli or green beans or rice/quinoa.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds + enjoy!
  • *** If substituting ground ginger for fresh ginger, cut the amount to 1/2 teaspoon
