Chickpea Sticks! Kid Friendly

I love making chickpea sticks. They're super delicious and kid friendly. In fact, this was one of the staple foods that I packed into my son’s lunch box for school. I serve these with a homemade sweet mustard sauce.

 

Cook Time: 25 Minutes

Makes 2-3 Servings

 

 

All you need is:

 

1 can of chickpeas rinsed and drained

 

1/2 an onion finely chopped

 

1-1/2 Tsp of garlic powder

 

1-1/2 Tsp of ground coriander

 

1-1/2 Tsp of your favorite curry powder  (Optional)

 

2 Tbs of nutritional yeast

 

4 Tsp of oil for cooking

 

1/4 cup of flour *I have used regular all purpose flour, and brown rice flour. You can use brown rice flour for a GLUTEN FREE version but I prefer to use all purpose, it just seems to hold them together better.

 

Sea Salt to taste *chickpeas can be pretty bland in flavor so be sure to add enough salt

 

 

Preparation:

 

Preheat oven to 375*

 

Simply combine all ingredients into a food processor and pulse for 5-10 seconds. You want the mixture to be broken down and crumbly (see picture below).

 

Next use a spoon to scoop out the mixture and form into sticks by pressing the mixture together. *Note that some brands of chickpeas seem to be softer than others. If your mixture seems to be too dry to stick together try adding a tablespoon of water to the mixture. If you feel like the mixture is to wet you can always add an additional tablespoon of water.

 

Next spread the oil on to a large cookie sheet and place the chickpea sticks on top. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve them with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy,

 

To make the dipping sauce just combine  about 3 Tbs of mustard with about 4-5 Tbs of maple syrup. You can add as much or as little of either as you like. Play around with the combonation until you get your desired flavor.

 

*This recipe has so many options. Try adding 1 cup of leftover cooked rice or quinoa and even oats for added texture. You can even roll them around in panko breadcrumbs for an even crispier texture.

You don't need a fancy food processor to do this. I am using my little Ninja food pprocessor

 

Two of my favorite seasonings: Ground Coriander & Indian Curry Blend

 

This is what the mixture should look like
