Total: 40 minutes



  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp cumin

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, water, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, cumin, paprika, and nutritional yeast (if using).

  2. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.

  3. Pour the chickpea mixture into the skillet and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and begins to pull away from the edges of the skillet.
