I am not a fan of chickpeas, but when I tried this recipe by Food Impromptu, I realized what I was missing out on. Who knew combining it with different vegetables and seasonings could make a dish that is healthy and delicious? It’s so good that I make it several times a week. You can serve it with plain rice, in a wrap, or as it is.



  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 cup of onion (thinly sliced and cut in half)
  • 1 cup carrot (cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
  • 1 cup of red bell pepper (cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
  • 2 cups of zucchini (cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of garlic (finely chopped)

Step 1:

Place a pan over heat, then add 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Next, add the onion, carrot, bell pepper, and salt. Fry the vegetables on medium heat until they are lightly browned and soft for about 5 to 6 minutes. Do not skip the salt, as it releases moisture from the vegetables that will help them cook faster.

Step 2:

Once the vegetables are fried, turn the heat to low. Add the finely chopped garlic and fry for about 30 seconds.

Next, add the zucchini, cooked chickpeas, dried oregano, paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt. Cook on medium-high heat, until the chickpeas are fried, and the zucchini are a bit cooked for about 4 to 5 minutes. Make sure not to overcook them.

Step 4:

Turn the heat off, then add parsley, ground black pepper, a good amount of lemon juice, and a drizzle of olive oil. Mix everything until well combined.
