Fries grão de bico

Ok, Então, no meu último post eu estava falando sobre o clima da Primavera quente e como era hora de comer muitas saladas. Poucos dias depois, e é frio e ventoso fora. É de março para você – imprevisível.

Portanto, agora que ele se sente muito frio para comer salada, 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 in NYC. Na verdade, I wrote about them in my rever of Peacefood Cafe 2 anos atrás. I wrote then “The famous chickpea fries got their reputation for a reason. They are large, crocante, 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, crocante, spicy and addictive. I served them with a creamy dipping sauce. And I’ll let you guess who got the last one. Desfrutar!

Fries grão de bico

2 xícaras de água
1 xícara de farinha de grão de bico
2 Tbs. óleo de cártamo, dividido
1 TSP. Sal kosher
½ colher de chá. pimenta preta
½ colher de chá. alho em pó
½ colher de chá. páprica
½ colher de chá. orégano
1/4 TSP. pimenta de Caiena
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. Adicionar 1 Tbs. oil and spices and mix for another minute or two until it is thickened. Retire do fogo. 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, sobre 5 minutos de cada lado. Transfer to a paper-towel lined dish or cooling rack and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Serve with your favorite dip.

O “V” Palavra: Diga-. Comê-lo. Vivê-la.

    Oi 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! Porém, we didn’t see your recipe for the dipping sauce…do you have one? Obrigado!

      Hi Jena, I usually make a quick ranch or spicy ranch dressing. Mix vegan mayo and sour cream with garlic powder, endro, black pepper and fresh chives. Adicionar o molho quente, se quiser picante. Horseradish-Dill Mayo is also good – that just takes mayo, raiz-forte, endro, molho 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!
