Chickpea Fajitas


400g Chickpeas
1 tblsp Olive Oil
pinch Paprika
2 small cut chunks Tomatoes
1 finely sliced Red Onions
2 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 Avocado
Juice of 1 Lime
Chopped Lime
100g Sour Cream
2 tsp Harissa Spice
4 Corn Tortillas
to serve Coriander


Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a baking tray with foil.
Drain the chickpeas, pat dry and tip onto the prepared baking tray.
Add the oil and paprika, toss to coat, then roast for 20-25 mins until browned and crisp, shaking halfway through cooking.
Meanwhile, put the tomatoes and onion in a small bowl with the vinegar and set aside to pickle.
Put the avocado in another bowl and mash with a fork, leaving some larger chunks.
Stir in the lime juice and season well.
Mix the soured cream with the harissa and set aside until ready to serve.
Heat a griddle pan until nearly smoking.
Add the tortillas , one at a time, charring each side until hot with griddle lines.
Put everything on the table and build the fajitas : spread a little of the harissa cream over the tortilla, top with roasted chickpeas, guacamole, pickled salsa and coriander, if you like.
Serve with the lime wedges for squeezing over.
