For the Stir Fry

  • 2 15 ounce cans chickpeas, drained
  • 1 pound frozen pineapple chunks (alternately, use a can of pineapple chunks)

Optional Mix Ins

  • sliced green onions
  • chopped almonds or peanuts
  • mushrooms
  • bell peppers
  • diced onions


  • Placed the drained chickpeas in a dry skillet over medium heat.

  • Pour about half of the bottle of sauce overtop of the chickpeas and pineapple, and begin to mix well.
  • Bring the sauce up to a bit of a bubble, adding more sauce as needed to coat.
