  • 200g of chickpea pasta
  • 1 clove of garlic (crushed)
  • 400g can of chickpeas
  • 1 large sweet potato (or two small)
  • 3 tsps coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch of chilli flakes
  • 4 sage leaves

Chickpea pasta is versatile enough for leftovers to be warmed up and tried with a variety of different accompanying sauces.


  1. First, cut the sweet potato into small cubes. Heat 1 tsp of coconut oil in a pan and sauté the sweet potato with a pinch of salt for 20 minutes until cooked through.
  2. Place the sweet potato to the side and pop the chickpeas, 1 tsp of coconut oil, the garlic and the chilli flakes into the same pan and sauté for 5 minutes.
  3. Boil the kettle using filtered water and add this with a pinch of salt into a pot, add in the pasta and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Drain the pasta then pop it back into the pot, add in the sweet potato, olive oil and chickpeas. Give them a good stir, pop the lid on and keep them on a low heat until the sage leaves are done.
  5. Heat a pan with 1 tsp of coconut oil and fry your sage leaves. Serve the pasta into bowls and place the leaves on top.
