Chickpea Soft Tacos

Chickpea Soft Tacos

This fast taco recipe works for the whole family. For toddlers who like simple tastes and flavors, stick to the ingredient list below. For older kids and adults who prefer a little kick, sprinkle a taco seasoning packet into the chickpea mixture while it simmers!


  • 1 (15-ounce) drained and rinsed chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 ounces tomato paste
  • 4 whole wheat flour tortillas
  1. Combine the chickpeas, water, and tomato paste in a skillet. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally – most of the liquid should be absorbed.
  2. Mash the chickpea mixture with a potato masher or fork until about half mashed, then divide evenly among the 4 tortillas.

My toddler likes to stop there, but older kids may want to add shredded lettuce, sliced olives, shredded vegan cheese, or non-dairy sour cream!
