  • Soak chickpeas for at least 8 hours. Then pressure cook for 10 minutes (if using electric pressure cooker), or for 6-7 whistles (if using jiggle-top pressure cooker), or until the chickpeas are tender.
  • Once they're cooked, drain and mash the chickpeas. Set aside.
  • Set a pan over low-medium heat. Add oil.
  • Once it's hot, add garlic + onion and saute until golden.
  • Now add mashed chickpeas + bell pepper + tomato + turmeric powder + smoked paprika + salt + pepper.
  • Mix well and cook for 5-6 minutes over low-medium heat. 
  • Next, add the spinach and mix well. Cook for around 2 minutes over low-medium. Vegan chickpea scramble is now ready.


  1. Can't wait for dried chickpeas to soak? You can use 2 cups of canned chickpeas (around 1 can). Drain, rinse, mash and continue from step 3.

  3. I made this today & it was good. However, I used canned chickpeas but they didn’t mash straight out the can. Even after cooking for a few min they didn’t easily mash & tasted a bit dry. I think I’ll try boiling them a bit beforehand or cooking fresh ones next time. Or maybe I did something wrong.
