"Take a break from the classics and try this simple, lemony chickpea pasta dish inspired by middle-eastern spices. It's delightfully tangy and aromatic, plus it's super easy to prepare and will be on your table in no time. The best part is that you only need 5 ingredients, which I'm sure you already have at home. We chose orecchiette pasta but feel free to use any other short pasta you have on hand. If you don’t have our Aromen Reichtum spice mix, you can also use a mix of black cumin, onion, chili flakes, mint, parsley, lemon zest, cumin, coriander, pepper, and garlic."

  • Step 2/3

    Drain chickpeas really well (the drier they are, the crispier they will be). Wash lemon thoroughly in hot water, zest and squeeze the juice from one half of the lemon. Set both aside. In a frying pan, heat half of the oil over medium heat. Add the drained chickpeas and sauté until golden brown and crispy, approx. 8–10 min. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add remaining oil to pan, then add the Aromen Reichtum spice mix or the alternative and fry for approx. 1 min.
