  • 1/2 large zucchini, sliced
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, quartered
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger or 1/2 inch minced fresh ginger

  1. In a pan over medium heat, add oil, onions and mushrooms with a pinch of salt and sauté until softened.
  2. Add in zucchini and scallions and sauté for about 2-3 minutes or until zucchini begins to starts to lightly brown around the edges.
  3. To the pan, add garlic, ginger and a splash of soy sauce and stir around in the pan to cook and become fragrant. Stir in the chickpeas and continue to cook for 3 minutes. Once everything is done cooking, remove from heat and set aside to prepare dressing.
