I love oriental food and the combination of flavors that form the sauce in this recipe is delicious. This version works well with my Nutritarian eating style. This is a very flexible recipe. You can use other greens like kale, collards or spinach. You can use other proteins in place of the chickpeas like 1/2 c sliced almonds, or 1 pound diced tofu. You can also vary the other vegetables to use up what you have on hand. Allow 3 cups raw greens and vegetables per person. To reduce prep time, you can use jarred ginger and garlic, bagged cole slaw mix and frozen vegetables.
