Vegan Loaded Baked Potatoes With Smokey Tomato Chickpeas, Crispy Kale & Tahini Mustard Sauce

Preparation time:

20 minutes

Cooking time:

45 minutes

Total time:

1 hour 5 minutes

Serving Size:

This recipe serves: 2 people


  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 can of chickpeas (drained weight approx. 240g)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • ½ green chili (or less for a milder version)
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes (approx. 400g)
  • 1½ teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons of tahini
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • ½ teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 4 handfuls of kale
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180˚C.
  2. Wash the potatoes, wrap them in aluminium foil and put them in the oven until they’re fully cooked and tender. This can take between 30 and 50 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes.
  3. Drain the chickpeas and fry them in olive oil until they start turning crispy. Add the salt, minced garlic and sliced green chili and fry for another couple of minutes.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes and let it simmer on low heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Add the smoked paprika and let it simmer for 2 more minutes.
  5. In the meantime, prepare the tahini mustard sauce. Add the tahini, salt, mustard, water and lemon juice to a mixing bowl and mix with a fork until well combined. The sauce should be smooth and creamy.
  6. Lastly, tear the kale into pieces and mix with the oil and salt. Spread the kale on a baking sheet and put it in the oven just a few minutes before the potatoes are ready. Keep an eye on the kale since it can start burning rather quickly. It’ll only need a few minutes in the oven.
  7. Once the edges of the kale are starting to go crispy and the potatoes are cooked, transfer them to a plate and top with all the toppings. Enjoy your Vegan Loaded Baked Potatoes With Smokey Tomato Chickpeas, Crispy Kale & Tahini Mustard Sauce!
