Italian Chickpeas

Italian Chickpeas well with brielle wellwithbrielle plant based food recipe

I literally make this EVERY week. It's delicious, quick, easy & CHEAP AF.

//Costs less than $5 for 2 people\

+Add pasta

+Eat over Spinach

+Enjoy Alone

Here are the ingredients you will need:

  • 3 Cans of Chickpeas

(or  1 can of tomato paste for every 1-2 cans of chickpeas is also GREAT!)

  • 2 Cans of Tomato Paste

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 Diced Yellow Onion

  • 1 Diced Green Bell Pepper (or other color of your choice)

  • Cayenne Pepper

  • Garlic Powder

  • Italian Seasoning OR Oregano


(By the way, FOREVER ago I made a video of how to make this dish. It's exactly the same except I no longer include Fennel. You can find the video here. Thanks!!) italian chickpeas plant based food recipe

1. Sautee diced onions and bell peppers in pan with olive oil. 

2. Once onions are cooked to desired consistency ( I love onions so I don't cook them for too long, but most people prefer their's cooked well) NEXT add cans of chickpeas. Also, add more olive oil as needed. 

Personally, I LOVE to mash most if not all my chickpeas (while they are in the can using a spoon is one of the easiest ways!). This gives the dish a more sauce or gravy like texture. 

3. Add all seasonings.

I go crazy with the garlic powder and Italian/oregano seasoning. 

I also go crazy with the olive oil. Olive oil is a healthy oil, but with anything you should practice moderation. I go crazy because the taste really adds to this dish making it delicious!!!

2. Finally, pour at least 1  can (use empty tomato paste can) worth of water into pan and allow to cook until desired consistency is met. Feel free to add more water if desired or more olive oil.

This determines the thickness of your dish.

I like mine to resemble pasta sauce. YUM!

Serve and enjoy!

Don't want to eat this dish by itself?

I love eating Italian Chickpeas alone, but they are also a DELICIOUS substitute for spaghetti sauce! Qunioa or a nice bed of spinach works great too!
