I am in love with how delicious yet simple these tacos are! It takes less than 10 minutes to whip up the teriyaki sauce, 5 minutes for the peach salsa, and 5-10 minutes for assembling. It’s that easy.

These are an ideal weeknight dinner to cook up in the summertime! Not to mention, peach season is here, which makes for a delicious and sweet peach salsa.

The teriyaki glazed chickpeas and peach salsa would also pair great on rice or in a wrap.

Your Questions Answered:

What can I substitute for the brown sugar or honey? I don’t recommend substituting the brown sugar, as that’s what gives the teriyaki sauce its subtly sweet, caramel flavor. If you must, you can substitute with coconut sugar.

Substitute the honey with maple syrup or agave if vegan.

What can I substitute for corn starch? You can substitute corn starch with tapioca starch.

I can’t locate fresh peaches near me. What should I use instead? This salsa would be delicious with mangos or pineapple! If you want to go the traditional route, you can use diced tomato instead.

How do I store the leftover sauce, chickpeas, and salsa? Store the teriyaki sauce in an airtight glass jar for up to 2 weeks. Separately store the glazed chickpeas and peach salsa for up to 5 days.
