Whip up these peanut miso chickpeas when you need a quick and easy dinner in less than 30 minutes. Coated in a tasty sauce blend of miso and peanut butter.


  • 1 tsp miso
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 23 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter, salted
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth or water


  1. Prep all vegetables and aromatics as described in the instructions.
  2. In a small bowl, add warm water and miso paste. Mix together with a fork to make sure miso is fully dissolved.
  3. Heat a pan to medium heat. Once the pan comes to temperature, add in onion and mushrooms.
  4. Allow to sit on the heat for a minute and then move around to saute for about 1-2 minutes until onions are translucent.
  5. Add in broccoli florets, and move around in the pan with a small splash of water for about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Follow this by adding in garlic and ginger and continuously saute this mixture until garlic and ginger are fragrant, about 1 minute.
  7. Add chickpeas, soy sauce, garlic chili sauce, peanut butter and vegetable broth and stir to combine.
  8. Allow mixture to come to a simmer and cook for 3 minutes.
  9. Add in miso mixture, stir well and allow to cook until broth thickens as desired, about 2 minutes.
  10. Remove from heat and serve with rice.


  • This recipe was tested with almond butter and is a great swap for peanut butter. You can also do this with other seed butters as well if you have an allergy.
  • Feel free to add additional vegetables, but be aware not to overcook delicate veggies too early. 
  • I used a mellow miso for this. Feel free to opt for white to yellow miso for this dish especially if you are new to miso.
  • Double the recipe if you’d like to meal prep this meal for the week.
  • To make this dish gluten free, use gluten free soy sauce or wheat free tamari.
