ROASTED CHICKPEAS

The chickpea - my absolute favourite legume. Today, I'm sharing a yummy recipe for roasted chickpeas. Full of protein, fibre, iron, and so much more!

ROASTED CHICKPEAS ARE A GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO HIGH-SALT, OIL LADEN CORN NUTS OR CHIPS. THEY OFFER A NICE CRUNCH AND HELP KEEP YOU FULL.

As you'll see in the picture above, roasted chickpeas make a great addition to salads. They are super easy to make and the flavour combinations are endless!


ROASTED CHICKPEAS

Print recipe HERE.

Ingredients:

  • 540 ml can chickpeas, drained/rinsed/patted dry with towel
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. coriander
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until chickpeas are completed coated.
     
  3. Spread chickpeas onto a large baking sheet and roast for 30-50 minutes. Roasting times vary between ovens and desired crunch. I myself found 35 minutes to be good. 
     
  4. Remove from heat and let cool 3 minutes. Chickpeas will continue to harden for a short while after removal from oven.
     
  5. Enjoy warm and store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.


The salad featured above is made with a green base (spinach, kale, chard), roasted chickpeas, celery, cauliflower, avocado, chia seeds and tahini dressing.
