A great way to eat your chickpeas and enjoy them is right here and its chickpeas paprikash.

The classic, traditional Hungarian recipe is made with chicken but here we will make it with chickpeas. And I'll tell you one thing... it's delicious.

There are so many reasons to love chickpea paprikash. Their aroma, their rich, creamy sauce that is very easy but tastes great. And what you should also know is that chickpea paprikash is even tastier the next day. So make double portions like I do.


Small pasta is an ideal for chickpeas paprikash. But you can accompany them with pasta of your choice or with rice or potatoes.

Instead of chickpeas you can use beans. They are equally delicious.

Hungarian sweet paprika is a key ingredient in the recipe. If you don't have or can't find then use whatever sweet paprika you can find.

You can use either ready-boiled chickpeas (available in supermarkets) or raw.

The recipe can be made vegan if you use soy yogurt instead of yogurt.
