Vegan Spiced Chickpea Tacos Recipe

Recipe created by Amy Sheppard

Tasty Vegan Spiced Chickpea Taco recipe that you will LOVE!⁠ Quick to make, and the recipe only uses a handful of flavourful ingredients.


Heat the oven to 200C

Place the onion and red pepper in a large non-stick pan with a drizzle of oil.

Fry for 5-7 minutes on medium heat until soft.

Add the chickpeas, tomato puree, chilli powder, smoked paprika, cumin and sugar. Stir until the chickpeas are coated.

Fry for 2 minutes. Add the water, stir and simmer on a low heat for 10-15 minutes, until the chickpeas have softened a little and the mixture has thickened. If it’s drying out too quickly when cooking, just add a splash more water.

While the chickpeas are cooking, heat the tortilla wraps.

Carefully place the tortillas, 4 at a time in the oven, hanging them over two of the metal grill bars (they will look like upside-down taco shells) Heat for around 4 minutes.

They will still be soft, but it will give them a bit of shape, making them easier to fill and eat!

When the chickpeas are ready, divide between the warmed tortillas and finish with lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes – you can also add some grated vegan cheese if you like!
