General Tso’s chickpeas

A beautiful photo on Pinterest encouraged me to try this recipe. I was looking for some interesting vegan recipe for dinner and I liked this recipe very much because it is incredibly simple and quick to make. It is also very delicious. I must try it out with the chicken. I have made this recipe a few times and peanut butter enriches the taste of the whole dish, so be sure to remember about it.
