Chickpea snack

Hello all,

So eating healthy is not my thing normally but I’m trying to eat a bit healthier at the moment as some of my clothes are getting a bit tight. 

I love chickpea but sometimes the can be boring and flavourless so I thought I would spice them up with some spices lol. 

All you need for this recipe is;
1 can of chickpea or dried chickpeas but you will need to soak them overnight
3 tablespoons of olive oil
Spices of your choice I used granulated garlic, chili flakes and pink salt. I ground these with a  mortar and pestle. 

Drain and rinse the chickpeas 

Place on some paper towel and leave to dry for about 10 to 15 Min.  Pre heat your oven to 200°. 

While you wait for the chickpeas to dry,  grab the spices you would like to use and ground them. If you don’t have a mortar and pestle place the spices in a glad bag and use a meat cleaver or rolling-pin to beat the spices. 

By then the chickpeas will be dry.  Put the chickpeas in a bowl with the 3 tablespoons and stir till they are all coated( you may need more oil if you have more chickpeas).   

Place the chickpeas on to a baking tray lined with some baking paper (this will make it easier to clean later).  
Cook for about 15 to 20 or till they are golden brown and crispy.  
Once you have taken then out of the oven place them straight into the spice mix.  
Stir till they are all coated.  

You can eat them warm or cool.  I prefer them when they have cooled down.  

This is a great snack for when you have visitors coming over or just for yourself.  

Hope you try this out and send me pics of how you go.
