Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Chickpeas will soon be your favorite meatless meal made with a quick homemade, addictive sweet and spicy Asian sauce.
For a long time I have been a huge fan of anything sweet and spicy. I love the combination and it is especially delicious in Asian inspired meals like this Sweet and Spicy Chickpeas. It uses a quick homemade sauce made with soy sauce, brown sugar, Asian garlic chili paste, and ginger. It's a Korean style sauce that I use for stir-fries and marinade all the time. The chickpeas are cooked in this mixture in the slow cooker so that they are fully infused with the flavor of the sauce. Served with rice and some quickly cooked veggies and its a meal you will make over and over again.
