These buffalo chickpea tacos are spicy and crunchy, topped with a rainbow of vegetables. They only take a few minutes to assemble and they can be made vegan and gluten free!



  • 1 15oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce, plus more for drizzling (see note)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 2 radishes, sliced into matchsticks
  • 4 flour or corn tortillas


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine the chickpeas, cumin, hot sauce, and salt in a small bowl. Stir until the chickpeas are evenly coated.
  3. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray. Spread the chickpeas in an even layer.
  4. Roast the chickpeas for 10 minutes, then stir and continue roasting for 5-10 minutes until browned.
  5. Top each tortilla with cabbage, radishes, and chickpeas. Drizzle with additional hot sauce, if desired.


I used Frank’s Original Hot Sauce. I can’t say that it’s the most “natural” option but it does happen to be gluten free and vegan.
