Roasted Chickpea Tacos

This is a recipe I’m so glad I tried. I will make these Roasted Chickpea Tacos again and again! The flavor is so good.

Ingredients (8 tacos)
•    2 t. chili powder
•    1/4 t. garlic powder
•    1/4 t. onion powder
•    1/4 t. dried oregano
•    1 1/2 t. ground cumin
•    1 t. sea salt
•    1 T. lime juice
•    2 T. water
•    One 14 oz. can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
•    8 organic taco shells (i.e. Trader Joe’s brand)
•    Taco trimmings: shredded cabbage, tomato, guacamole, non-dairy (i.e. Daiya) cheese, etc.


•    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, cumin, salt, lime juice and water.
•    Add chickpeas and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

•    Prepare taco shells according to package directions. Fill with chickpeas and desired toppings. (I used a bag of choleslaw for the shredded cabbage, salsa, cheddar Daiya, and made a quick guacamole: avacado mashed with salsa, garlic and onion powder, and good squeeze of lime juice).
