  • skillet


  • 1/4 cup peanut butter creamy/salted
  • 1 lime medium size - juiced
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp curry powder use less for a milder flavor
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste - at least 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chickpeas cooked/canned - drained and rinsed
  • Optional garnishes greens, smoky paprika, hot sauce, fresh herbs


  • Place a sauce pot over high heat and add the garlic and a splash of water. Allow the garlic to cook and caramelize a bit. (You could also use a teaspoon of oil instead of water for a richer flavor)
  • Whisk in the peanut butter, maple syrup, lime juice, water and curry powder. Keep whisking as you bring the mixture to a slow boil. Lower the heat to low and continue whisking as the sauce thickens.
  • Add in the chickpeas. Stir well. Allow the sauce and chickpeas to simmer on low for 3-4 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • When chickpeas are tender and sauce thickened, remove from heat. Serve over top rice or quinoa or inside a pita or a wrap. You could even serve on the side of a salad or alongside other veggies.
