    Hawaiian Chickpea Teriyaki:

    red onion
    pineapple or mango
    lime juice
    chickpeas (garbanzo beans) 1can (15 oz)
    1/2 cup teriyaki sauce (I use east-west sweet ginger teriyaki, all natural ingredients)
    2 cups brown rice

    1. start cooking rice
    2. then put then rinsed garbanzo beans and 1/2 cup teritaki sauce in a frying pan on low-medium, stir occasionally to coat the peas with the sauce, then while thats cooking go to step 3.
    3. Mix equal parts minced cilantro, minced red onion, minced pineapple or mango, (I used crushed pineapple from the can), and the lime juice.
    4. check on peas again the sauce should be nearly gone out of the pan.
    5. Layer rice, chickpeas and the salsa mix and Eat Up!! One of my fave vegan recipes!

    I am vegetarian, and I hate beans/tofu/anything gross (no offence to others) lentils are ok but I barely use them. So I have to substitute. Its hard.

    Theres plenty I make.. Including home made pizzas on light wraps. Top with whatever you desire.

    Quiche. Pretty versitile, I dont use pastry or cream. I either use skim milk, cottage cheese ect. Chuck in your favourite vegetables.

    Pastas. I use wholemeal spaghetti and make (healthy as I can) mushroom carbonara. I also use pasta sauce, add my favourite vegetables. I also do spinach and ricotta canelloni, macaroni bakes, ect.

    Omlettes. Pretty straight forward there, I sometimes add some two minute noodles in and fry them. Theyre delicious.

    Sandwiches. Use salad vegetables, add curried eggs, use different sauces.

    Make your own vege patties.

    Savoury muffins and slices.

    My diary is full of the stuff, add me if you want to take a look.
