I’m a big lover of any kind of snack, whether it’s popcorn or peas – I love to munch on things throughout the day!
I’ve loved chickpeas for a long time and my mum recently bought a pack of 12 TINS FOR £1.50. Seriously, woah. Like, I love chickpeas but this takes things to a whole new level!
I’ve been trying to find new ways to cook with them, i love sautéeing with some spinach and bacon, made into falafels, stews, hummus and I’ve always loved roasting them. They’re the perfect crunchy snack as an alternative to crisps! you can make them sweet by glazing them in honey or maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon!
They make a perfect snack or light supper with some other things, as shown above. I’m sure everyone would be impressed if you served them at a party as a nibble with some drinks! Little do they know, they’re actually super easy to rustle up. I mean, 3 ingredients – what are you waiting for?!
Here’s a video tutorial I made too 🙂
1 tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
Extra virgin olive oil, to coat (you can also use coconut oil if you are going for the sweet route)
Optional: any flavourings of your choice, I used smoked paprika
Preheat your oven to 180ºC.
Put chickpeas in a bowl and dry them using tissue (you can also use a salad spinner).
Coat with olive oil and salt and mix liberally with you hands.
Place on a lined baking tray and put in the middle shelf of the oven for 30 minutes, flipping half way through.
They should be done by 30 minutes, but if not, put them back in at 5 minutes intervals until done.
