Bacon Flavoured Chickpeas


Bacon Chickpeas

  • 2 TBS Soy Sauce or Tamari
  • 1 TBS Maple Syrup
  • 1 TBS Vegan Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 Tspn Smoked Paprika
  • 1 Tin Chickpeas
  • Spray Oil Optional


  • 2 Slices Crusty Bread or wrap
  • 1/4 Avocado
  • 2 Slices Tomato
  • Small Handful Lettuce


  • Mix the soy sauce, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce and paprika in a glass or bowl. 
  • Heat a fry pan on high heat. Spray with oil (or use a non-stick pan). Drain and rinse the chikpeas. When the frying pan is hot, add the chickpeas. Cook for a minute.
  • Add the sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has disappeared, and chickpeas are browned. You can cook for a little longer here, to achieve a crunchiness on the chikpeas, but be careful they don't burn.
  • Serve on crusty bread, with avocado, tomato and lettuce for a delicious BLAT. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge.
