  • 1 Package Chickapea Spirals
  • 2 Tbsp salt, (for cooking pasta)
  • 1 1/3 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, sifted
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon, ground

    1. Cook the Chickapea spirals al dente, (heat 16 cups of water and 2 Tbsp of salt in a large pot over high heat until boiling. Add pasta to the water, decrease heat to maintain a gentle boil.  Stir and cook pasta for 5 minutes) 
    2. Drain pasta and rinse with warm water
    3. Pat the pasta dry
    4. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F
    5. Add the pasta to a bowl and mix in the oil until evenly coated
    6. In a small bowl mix together, white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon
    7. Roll the noodles in the sugar mixture and toss well to coat
    8. Place the coated noodles in the air fryers basket
    9. Air fry the noodles at 400°F for 8 minutes, toss them in the basket to flip
    10. Cook the noodles until cooked through and crispy but not brown
    11. Remove the cooked noodles from the air fryer 
    12. Roll the still hot noodles back in the sugar mixture
    13. Set the recoated noodles aside allowing them to cool before storing or serving
    14. Serve with vegan, gluten-free caramel sauce or chocolate sauce
    15. Enjoy!

    Recipe notes:

    • The noodles will continue to firm up slightly when cooling
    • Once cooled, store the cooked noodles in a seal container outside of the refrigerator
    • To make without an air fryer, bake the seasoned noodles on a single layer tray at 400°F for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and becoming crispy (flipping halfway)
    • Without an air fryer the pasta swirls will not be as crispy 
    • If the pasta swirls are stored in a sealed container while still warm the condensation which collects in the container will make them soggy
    • Store at room temperature in a sealed container for up to 3 days
    • Nature’s Charm Coconut salted Caramel sauce and AvenueSweets Dairy-Free Caramel sauce are both suitable for vegans
    • Caramel sauce and chocolate sauce will keep cover in the fridge for 5 days

    Cook and
    Not Guess

    1. Boil 10 cups of salted water.
    2. Add your pasta to the boiling water.
    3. Stir a few stirs so they don’t stick together.
    4. Maintain a steady boil for 5-8 minutes or until you reach your desired level of doneness.
    5. Drain, rinse and serve with your favourite sauce.
    6. Then think, “wow, I didn’t really have to guess while I cooked, thanks Chickapea.”
