One of our favorite things to eat when we go up to Canada is shawarma! There is a fantastic place near where Brett’s mom lives that makes the best shawarmas, falafels, and wraps.  I made this chickpea shawarma recipe to recreate the magic in our own kitchen. I tossed some cooked chickpeas with pantry-staple spices, baked them for 30 minutes, and filled up a pita.  Served with a side of tabbouleh salad, and bring the shawarma home.

This Chickpea Shawarma Recipe Is:

  • Sweet
  • Hearty
  • Smoky
  • Loaded with Flavor
  • Earthy
  • High in plant-protein
  • Vegan, gluten free, and SO good!

Sheet Pan Shawarma Recipes For the Win!

This chickpea spiced shawarma is the perfect sheet pan dinner!  I love a good sheet pan meal, especially during these winter months when the weather starts to turn cooler. Cooking on a sheetpan is one of my favorite ways to get a meal on the table fast!  All the food gets cooked on a single pan, which makes cleaning up a breeze. And the oven does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks. Sheetpan meals are awesome for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – check out my link here to see other healthy sheet pan meals that are ready in no time!
