Ingredients for Chickpea Fries:

  • 1 1/2 C. Chickpea flour
  • 2 C. Water
  • 1/4 C. Olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Chili Powder

Making the Chickpea Dough

In a sauce pan, add in the water, oil, and seasonings. Bring just to a boil, add in the chickpea flour slowly, whisking as you pour in the flour, to prevent lumps. Whisk until the chickpea flour mixture becomes a thick, sticky dough. About 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

In a foil lined baking dish (9 x 9) sprayed with cooking oil, pour in the hot chickpea mixture. Spread quickly into and even layer with a spoon. Leave out on the counter for 15 minutes to cool. Then, transfer to the fridge to cool and set for 3 hours.

***You can always do this part ahead of time and cover in plastic wrap over night. Then, the next day, you will just have to cut and bake these babies.

Making into Fries

Preheat the oven to 425 Degrees

Remove the chickpea dough from the baking dish. Cut into 1 inch strips and then cut the 9 inch strips in half (1 inch by 4.5 inch slices). Place onto a silpat or greased baking sheet. You can place them relatively close together, because they won’t spread out while cooking.

Bake for 10 minutes, then flip them over to brown on the other side for another 10-12 minutes.

Serve them with your favorite burger, sandwich and dipping sauce!
