Chickpea Fries

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
- 40 fries


  • 1 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 1 cup onion, yellow; minced
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp thyme, fresh minced
  • 1/2 tsp coriander, ground
  • 2 cups chickpea flour
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tsp salt, kosher (or to taste)


  • In a medium sauce pot on medium add grapeseed oil and sauté onions until translucent.
  • Add minced garlic, fresh thyme, coriander and half the salt. Sautee until garlic is fragrant, about 3 minutes
  • Add water and remaining salt along with chick pea flour
  • Bring to a boil and continually stir mixture until thick to the consistency of cream of wheat.
  • Spread on a well-oiled glass casserole dish or small parchment lined and oiled sheet pan.
  • Cover with another sheet of oiled parchment and wrap with plastic wrap. Cool at least 4 hours
  • Cut into manageable sizes and drop into 375 degree oil , cook until golden brown
  • These will also pan fry beautifully and can be cut into other shapes and used as a base to a fish entrée, or any other protein for a more sophisticated take on the fry.
  • Best to make day ahead and fry fresh and serve immediately with a spiced up mayo.
