Recipe (Serves 3-4)


  • 1 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 red onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 bell pepper, de-seed, stem removed and chopped into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 medium courgette, head removed and sliced into coins, then coins halved
  • 2 cups of broccoli florets
  • 1 400g tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp miso paste + 1 tbsp boiled hot water (mixed together)
  • To serve: 3-4 servings of wholewheat noodles


  1. Prepare your garlic and veggies first as above in the ingredients list. Wash the veg too!
  2. Heat the oil in a pot or pan on the hob/stove. Add the garlic and onions and cook for 3-4 minutes to sweat the onions.
  3. Add the ginger and stir to coat the onions in it.
  4. Add the veggies and stir again for another 3-4 minutes.
  5. Next, add the soy sauce, miso paste/water mix and honey. Stir to coat the veggies in the liquid.
  6. Add the tin of chickpeas, and stir again.
  7. Cook for another 5-10 minutes on a low heat, until the veggies are softened, stirring frequently. Cook your noodles according to package instructions during this time.
  8. Serve up and tuck in!
