Chickpea Fries [V, GF]

Chickpea Fries were definitely on my to-do list of favorite appetizers I had to make for myself and I did. They are incredibly fast and easy to make. It’s just like making Polenta Fries except I pan-fried these instead of baking them. My Chickpea Fries are large, crispy, spicy and addictive. I served them with a creamy dipping sauce. And I’ll let you guess who got the last one. Enjoy!

Chickpea Fries


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 Tbs. safflower oil, divided
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Oil or cooking spray for pan


  1. Bring the water to a boil in a medium sized saucepan. Add the chickpea flour slowly and stir until smooth. Add 1 Tbs. oil and spices and mix for another minute or two until it is thickened. Remove from the heat. Oil a small baking dish or casserole pan. Spread the chickpea batter into the pan evenly, smoothing the top with a spatula. Refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight until it is firm and solid.
  2. Remove from the refrigerator. Loosen the edges with a butter knife or thin spatula. Turn the dish over while keeping one hand on the chickpea block and carefully let the block land on a cutting board. Cut the block into fries. You should get at least 16 fries depending on the size you cut them.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium high heat and cook the chickpea fries until they are browned and crispy on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel lined dish or cooling rack and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Serve with your favorite dip.

Swap out the oil for coconut and sounds good. Otherwise toxic at that heat.
