Easy & Delicious Gluten Free Spicy Chickpeas Salad Recipe #PataksMom


Are you looking for an easy healthy recipe that’s also gluten free? Look no more. Try this chickpeas salad recipe with Pataks’ Tikka paste. I am sure it will become a staple in your home. With Celiac Awareness Month around the corner, I wanted to show my support to those who stick to a gluten free diet.. My family does not suffer from this disease so I had to make sure of the gluten free products in my recipes.

Thankfully, all Patak’s Canada products in Canada are gluten free, I figured I could use them safely in my salad recipe. I tried the following Chickpea curry recipe from Patak’s Canada website. Nothing like a salad recipe to welcome spring, right? Don’t worry, spring is on its way. I think if I send positive thoughts and prepare springish recipe, it will come faster.

Gluten Free Spicy Chickpeas Salad Recipe



  • 2 tbsp Patak’s Tikka Paste
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 can (540ml) chick peas, drained
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 green chilli pepper, cut lengthwise in half. I used colored peppers.
  • 1/2 tsp sugar

Make it

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Fry the onions for 5 – 6 minutes, until soft.
  2. Add the Patak’s Tikka Paste and the chopped tomatoes, reduce heat to medium, and cook for another 5 – 8 minutes.
  3. Add the  chilli pepper and chick peas. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the sugar.
  5. Serve with warm naan bread or chapattis or  gluten free baguette


What do you think? Doesn’t this gluten free recipe look delicious. It really is. To spice up things a bit, I even added some Tikka paste to my baguette. I love spicy food and I enjoy toasted bread with hot spreads.

  1. I love chickpeas but only have one recipe for them. Now I have two. I look forward to trying this recipe, it looks and sounds tasty.

  2. Hey Olfa, this chickpea salad looks fresh and tasty – and I am saving your recipe to give it a try – I’ll look for the Tikka paste and well, I can hardly wait – thank you 🙂

  3. I bought Chickpeas to try them out, 3 months ago. I’ve had Hummus, which I know has Chickpeas in it- but for some reason I just can’t make myself open the darn can of Chickpeas sitting in my pantry! This recipe gives me a reason to finally open them and try them out!

  4. My husband would be all over these spicy chickpeas. Now that I’m on this 8-week challenge to lose weight I’m always looking for healthy options for us.

  5. My daughter is gluten free and can get pretty bored with the same old foods. She would love this so I’m going to pass the recipe on!
