Taco filling

  • 1 avocado chopped into cubes
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • 1 1/2 cups chickpeas canned, drained and rinsed
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 1/2 big onion finely sliced
  • 6 tbsp red cabbage finely sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (to roast the chickpeas)
  • 1-2 tbsp soy sauce gluten-free (to roast the chickpeas)
  • fresh cilantro to taste

Tahini dressing


  • Put the chickpeas in a pan/skillet together with the balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Pan-fry at low-medium heat for about 5 minutes and stir frequently.
  • Chop your veggies and the avocado. You can lightly sauté the veggies (onion, green pepper, red cabbage, tomatoes) in a pan/skillet for a few minutes with a little bit of oil or leave them raw (like I did).
  • Mix the ingredients for the tahini dressing in a small bowl with a whisk. If you use a thick tahini paste then you might need more water to thin it out.
  • Stuff your tortillas with the veggies, the roasted chickpeas and drizzle the tahini dressing on top. Enjoy hot or cold!


  • You can use tamari or coconut aminos instead of soy sauce.
  • Read the blog post for more tips and variations.
  • The recipe makes approximately 6 tacos. I calculated the nutrition facts for one taco including the tahini sauce, made with my homemade gluten-free tortillas. The numbers will be different if you use store-bought tortillas.
