Crunchy and Spicy Chickpea Tacos

If you are in a mood for something spicy, and crunchy, try this and you won't be disappointed. I saw the recipe  on The Happy Herbivore blog, and it did not take long till we had tacos for dinner. This is also  a great way to cook chickpeas. It takes about 20-30 minutes to prep and cook.

  • 15 ounces chickpeas, cooked
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 2 tsp lemon juice 
  • 2-3 tbsp taco seasoning 
  • 8 whole taco shells

Preheat oven to 400F. Whisk tamari, juice, and spices together. Toss the chickpeas until well and evenly coated. Place chickpeas on tray, spray with oil and bake 20-25 minutes, until crunchy. Put the chickpeas, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa in the tacos. You can add avocado and sour cream, cheese, etc. The possibilities are endless :)



  1. This looks delicious - where did you find tamari?

  2. I bought it from Whole Foods, but I guess you can find it in other grocery stores too.
