Yes, this looks like a brain – BUT it is sooo delicious!

I am incredibly grateful that I can continue to work from home as long as my work allows, and that means meal planning my lunch every-single-day.

With more time at home specifically, finding quick and inexpensive lunch ideas that are fast and flavorful has become a really fun hobby.

There is no rhyme or reason to this shrimp stir fry. I raided my freezer and added as many pantry staples as I could – and if I do say so myself, it turned out really really well!

Prepare Ingredients

Throw stir-fry mix into a pot and set heat to medium. You want the veggies to start to thaw and let the excess water release. This is the base of your sauce.

Cook veggies using package directions. You do not need a pre-mix of veggies – You can chop and use any veggies you want!

About 5 minutes before the veggies are considered cooked through based on package directions, throw in your already cooked shrimp. If you are not using pre-mix veggies, measure the time by how cooked through the veggies are, or if your onion is turning translucent. The shrimp will also let out a ton of water – This will help your chickpea pasta cook.

Cook for 5 minutes. Throw in your garlic powder, onion powder, lemon pepper, sriracha, Worcestershire sauce, coconut aminos, sesame oil, Kroger General Tso stir-fry sauce, and pepper flakes.

Continue on medium heat and add your chickpea pasta to the watery shrimp stir-fry. The excess water will cook your pasta. Check pasta package directions. I am using Ancient Harvest Protein Chickpea Elbows and I cooked the pasta for about 5 minutes.

I finished the dish off with another small drizzle of Kroger General Tso stir-fry sauce as I really like the flavor!
