Spanish Chickpeas with Spicy Paprika Tomato Sauce

 – Spanish Chickpeas with Spicy Paprika Tomato Sauce –

These Spanish Chickpeas with Spicy Paprika Tomato Sauce are beyond easy to make, loaded with Spanish flavors and done within 20 minutes. You can serve these Spanish chickpeas as a side dish, tapas appetizer or even as a main course next to a crusty baguette. This dish is naturally gluten-free, vegan and super healthy, the perfect dish to start the new year.  For this recipe I used jarred cooked chickpeas, just because it makes it so much easier, but you can always make your chickpeas from scratch. 

Spanish Chickpeas with Spicy Paprika Tomato Sauce

– The Secret to this Dish is in the Paprika –

This recipe uses 2 types of smoked paprikas, the sweet kind and the hot kind. I used Kiva´s sweet smoked Spanish paprika and Kiva´s hot smoked Spanish paprika, both of these smoked paprikas are truly incredible and take this dish to the next level. If you have a jar of smoked paprika at home and it doesn´t state if it´s sweet or hot, it´s most likely sweet, it always states when it´s hot.

    Super delicious! I used 1/8tsp cayenne and 7/8tsp regular paprika for my ‘hot paprika’ and my result were great. I am a new to plant based whole food eating, and I am happy you have some classic dishes that fit my new way of life(no animal products). I had this dish with your lemony garlic roasted potatoes and a big piece of crusty bread *muah*, delish. Thank you for the recipes!
