Vegan Buffalo Chickpea Tacos with cheese sauce


Buffalo chickpea sauce

1 tbsp Safflower oil

1 medium sized onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 bell pepper, chopped

1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas (or one 15 oz can, drained and rinsed)

1/2 cup tomato sauce (passata)

2 tbsp plant-based milk

1 tbsp lemom

Spice mix: 1 tsp onion powder, 3/4 tsp molases, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, sea salt, ground pepper, and chili powder to taste


10 small tortillas about 14 cm in diameter


Using a fork, roughly mash the chickpeas in a bowl.

Heat oil in a pan/skillet over medium heat and add the chopped onion and bell pepper. Cook for 3 minutes, then add garlic and spice mix and sauté for a further minute.

Add all other sauce ingredients + chickpeas to the pan and bring the mixture to a boil. Let simmer on low heat for about 2-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, then turn off the heat.

Taste the mixture, if you want it spicier, add more chili powder to taste.

Preheat oven to 410 degrees F (210 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place about 2 tbsp of the filling onto each tortilla and roll them up tightly. Place every tortilla seam-side down on the baking sheet, next to each other.

Brush them with a little bit of safflower oil (to make them even more crispy). Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy.
