Crunchy Chickpea Pasta with Tahini Dressing

5/5 (2)



  • Step 1.

    Heat the oven to 200°C.

  • Step 2.

    In a bowl, toss the chickpeas with olive oil, cumin, smoked paprika, and salt until evenly coated.

  • Step 3.

    Spread the chickpeas on a baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until they become golden and crunchy. Shake the pan occasionally to ensure even roasting. Set aside.

  • Step 4.

    Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Allow it to cool.

  • Step 5.

    In a large bowl, combine the pasta, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, parsley, and mint. Toss gently to mix.

  • Step 6.

    In a small bowl, whisk together tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, maple syrup or honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. If the dressing is too thick, add water a tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency.

  • Step 7.

    Pour the tahini dressing over the pasta and vegetables. Toss the salad until everything is well coated with the dressing.

  • Step 8.

    Sprinkle over the crunchy chickpeas and serve.
