Our chickpeas on toast with greens is healthy and delicious. It’s an easy dish that is ideal for a quick lunch, appetiser or camping meal.
These tasty chickpea toasts are inspired by the Spanish tapas dish Espinacas con Garbanzos. For more Spanish inspired food that would go really well with this dish check out our 12 Vegan Spanish Recipes You Need to Try.
We think that our chickpeas on toast deserves to be a camping classic just like beans on toast. It’s so simple, protein packed and the added greens make it even more nutritious. We used Swiss chard this time, but spinach, kale or other leafy greens would work just as well.
All you need is a tin of chickpeas, gram flour, paprika, cumin, soy sauce, lemon and some leafy greens. And some toast of course!
Gram flour, also known as besan is made from dried chickpeas. It’s great for gluten free cooking, and is also the magic ingredient used to make vegan omelettes. In our chickpeas on toast recipe it works to coat the chickpeas and spread the flavour around. If you don’t have any you could try substituting plain flour, or just leave it out. You could also make up the gram flour and spice mix in advance if you are going camping.
To make this easy chickpea recipe, simply drain and pat dry the chickpeas, mix them with the gram flour and spices and then fry in oil for a few minutes. Then add a good handful of washed and chopped greens along with a splash of soy sauce and lemon. Continue to fry for another couple of minutes until the greens are wilted. Serve on slices of toast – we especially like our chickpeas on some of our Super Seedy Sourdough.
