I’m so excited to share another easy 15 minute recipe with you! I’ve partnered with Patient First for this series of deliciously healthy recipes. Just like this vegetable curry recipe, these chickpea tacos are quick and easy to make but they’re a satisfying meatless meal. These tacos can also be customized with your favorite toppings, so they’re great for the whole family!

Patient First has been my go-to urgent care ever since my first DIY mishap when I first moved to Richmond! Now, as the mom of a very active toddler, I love that they’re open every day, including weekends and holidays! Be sure to check out a few of my other recipes in collaboration with Patient First including my immunity-boosting soup, apple cinnamon bread, and Mediterranean lentil soup!

Why I Love This Recipe

These chickpeas tacos are perfect for Meatless Monday or Taco Tuesday! Chickpeas are an inexpensive and healthy taco filling. They’re a good source of protein and fiber. The avocado is a healthy source of fat and fiber so it makes these tacos extra satisfying. If you’re looking for other ways to add healthy ingredients to your meals, try these simple healthy swaps!

Ingredients & Substituions

  • Chickpeas– I used canned chickpeas. Be sure to drain and rinse them. I recommend patting them dry with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels. This helps them get extra crispy.
  • Olive oil– I used olive oil but avocado oil can be substituted.
  • Spices– I used a combination of cumin, chili powder, dried oregano, smoked paprika, and garlic powder. If you don’t have all these spices, you can substitute them for 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning.
  • Avocado- I used avocado but you can also use guacamole for even more flavor. This is a great way to add healthy fat to your meal.
  • Pico de gallo– I love the flavor of fresh tomatoes but any tomato salsa works great!
  • Mayonnaise– You can use veganaise if you want to keep this recipe plant based.
  • Adobo sauce– If you can’t find adobo sauce, you can buy canned chipotle chilies in adobo sauce and just use 1 tablespoon of sauce from the can. You can refrigerate or freeze any remaining peppers and sauce for another use.
  • Tortillas– I used flour tortillas but corn tortillas work great too if you want a gluten free option.
  • Cilantro– This is optional but I love the flavor of a little fresh cilantro sprinkled on top!
