Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a baking tray with foil. Drain the chickpeas, pat dry and tip onto the prepared baking tray. Add the oil and paprika, toss to coat, then roast for 20-25 mins until browned and crisp, shaking halfway through cooking.

  2. Meanwhile, put the tomatoes and onion in a small bowl with the vinegar and set aside to pickle. Put the avocado in another bowl and mash with a fork, leaving some larger chunks. Stir in the lime juice and season well. Mix the soured cream with the harissa and set aside until ready to serve.

  3. Heat a griddle pan until nearly smoking. Add the tortillas , one at a time, charring each side until hot with griddle lines. 

  4. Put everything on the table and build the fajitas : spread a little of the harissa cream over the tortilla, top with roasted chickpeas, guacamole, pickled salsa and coriander, if you like. Serve with the lime wedges for squeezing over.

I found the chickpeas tasty, especially with the the other elements added. The tomato salsa was a little wet and dribbled out of the finished fajita, but I'm sure this could easily be amended.

We did not like the roasted chickpeas and they were very bland. The salsa and avocado dishes were really lovely though

When you list 'harissa' in your recipes, this one in particular, please could you tell me if you mean the paste or the powder version? Thank you
