Chickpea Veggie Stir Fry

This week Dad has been working the late shift and without him here I feel less inspired to cook. The kiddos and I have been eating a lot of boxed pasta and canned sauce, so tonight I thought I’d make something fresh and healthy. I’ve been running during the day since Dad is home during the day and I’m craving some serious nutrition! I might be the hangriest monster of them all today!

Tonight for dinner the kiddos and I are having chickpea stir fry. It’s fast and easy and my kids love bright coloured vegetables. I know, I have weird kids! It’s super yummy too! The chickens love it when I cook stir fry too cause they love the left over veggie cores and ends.
