Fries garbanzo

Bueno, así que en mi último mensaje que estaba hablando del clima cálido de primavera y como ya era hora de comer muchas ensaladas. Unos días más tarde y hace frío y ventoso fuera. Eso es de marzo para usted – imprevisible.

Así que ahora que se siente demasiado frío para comer ensalada, I’ve been cooking chilis and stews and craving favorite comfort foods. One favorite I have been thinking about is chickpea fries. I first had them at Peacefood Cafe en Nueva York. De hecho, I wrote about them in my revisión of Peacefood Cafe 2 Hace años. I wrote then “The famous chickpea fries got their reputation for a reason. They are large, crujiente, spicy and addictive. They come with a creamy house dipping sauce. This is definitely one of those appetizers where you start negotiations over who gets the last one.”

Chickpea Fries were definitely on my to-do list of favorite appetizers I had to make for myself and I did. They are incredibly fast and easy to make. It’s just like making Polenta Fries except I pan-fried these instead of baking them. My Chickpea Fries are large, crujiente, spicy and addictive. I served them with a creamy dipping sauce. And I’ll let you guess who got the last one. Disfrutar!

Fries garbanzo

2 tazas de agua
1 taza de harina de garbanzos
2 Tbs. aceite de cártamo, dividido
1 tsp. Sal Kosher
½ cucharadita. pimienta negro
½ cucharadita. polvo de ajo
½ cucharadita. paprika
½ cucharadita. orégano
1/4 tsp. pimienta de cayena
Oil or cooking spray for pan


Bring the water to a boil in a medium sized saucepan. Add the chickpea flour slowly and stir until smooth. Añadir 1 Tbs. oil and spices and mix for another minute or two until it is thickened. Retirar del fuego. Oil a small baking dish or casserole pan. Spread the chickpea batter into the pan evenly, smoothing the top with a spatula. Refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight until it is firm and solid.

Remove from the refrigerator. Loosen the edges with a butter knife or thin spatula. Turn the dish over while keeping one hand on the chickpea block and carefully let the block land on a cutting board. Cut the block into fries. You should get at least 16 fries depending on the size you cut them.

Heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium high heat and cook the chickpea fries until they are browned and crispy on both sides, acerca de 5 minutas por side. Transfer to a paper-towel lined dish or cooling rack and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Serve with your favorite dip.

    Hola Rhea! My best friend and I were just at Peacefood Cafe yeaterday and had the chickpea fries! Delish! So happy to have found your recipe! Sin embargo, we didn’t see your recipe for the dipping sauce…do you have one? Gracias!

      Hi Jena, I usually make a quick ranch or spicy ranch dressing. Mix vegan mayo and sour cream with garlic powder, eneldo, black pepper and fresh chives. Añadir la salsa picante si quieres picante. Horseradish-Dill Mayo is also good – that just takes mayo, rábano picante, eneldo, salsa picante, salt and pepper and scallions. Sometimes just mayo with Worcestershire sauce and garlic is a simple one.

    i didn’t do a very good job of keeping to look like fries like yours. mine look like patties. haha. hubby loves them though. it’s a little too spicy for me, so i’m gonna make another batch but without the cayenne pepper. i forgot i shouldnt be eating spicy things cuz i’m still nursing. it’s just the right amount of spicy for my hubby though. thanx! and to the commentor above, yes chickpeas are really healthy for you!

    Candace, yes chickpeas are very good for you. They are a source of protein and calcium!

    Thanks Mia and Barb!
