baby spinach leaves
rice wine vinegar
Thinly slice the red onion. In a small bowl, combine the rice wine vinegar and a generous pinch of salt and sugar. Scrunch the onion in your hands, then add to the pickling liquid with just enough water to cover the onion. Stir to coat and set aside until serving.
Thinly slice the capsicum into strips. Finely chop the tomato. Pick and thinly slice the mint leaves. Finely chop the garlic. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. In a second small bowl, combine the Greek-style yoghurt, mint and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the slivered almonds and toast, tossing, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
Return the frying pan to a high heat with a generous drizzle of olive oil. Cook the capsicum until just tender, 3-4 minutes. Add the chickpeas and cook, tossing occasionally, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic, chermoula spice blend, butter and tomato paste (see ingredients) and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the water, stir to combine and simmer until thickened, 1-2 minutes.
Using a potato masher or fork, lightly mash the chickpeas until some of them have broken up and the sauce has thickened. Season to taste. Remove from the heat and set aside. Microwave the mini flour tortillas on a plate for 10 second bursts, until warmed through. TIP: Add a splash of water if the chickpea mixture looks too thick.
Drain the pickled onion. Bring everything to the table to serve. Build your tacos by filling them with a helping of baby spinach leaves, chermoula chickpeas, tomato and pickled onion. Top with the mint yoghurt and toasted almonds. Sprinkle over a pinch of chilli flakes (if using).
