Okay, before I begin, I want to tell you something. I solemnly swear that I will NEVER, EVER post anything on this blog that I don’t love 100%. When I post something, it’s because I actually think it is delicious and that you are going to think it is delicious as well. I also only post things that I think you’re going to enjoy making & will have success making. I want you to have a positive feeling after you make something that I’ve posted, and not anger and frustration.
So that being said, I can’t WAIT to tell you about these roasted chickpeas. If you’re anything like my hubby, you’re going “Um Lisa, you just said you were only going to post delicious recipes, chickpeas are gross.” Never fear my friends, THESE ARE SO GOOD. They’re like little crunchy, savoury pockets of goodness. I have a jar of them at my desk at work that I reach for whenever I need a little snack/pick-me-up. Dare I say, these are almost as good as chips…and that’s saying A LOT (chips are my kryptonite). However, unlike chips, these are good for you!
Chickpeas are high in fiber and protein, so they help to keep you full. Eating them has been shown to help lower the bad cholesterol in your body as well! PLUS, as a bonus to me, they are an excellent source of iron, so really, eating them is a no brainer. Guess what, these are also gluten free, CLEAN and completely vegan, so everyone can enjoy these and feel good about it!
OH OH OH, two more things. This whole snack, will probably cost you about $2 (MAX), and that’s if you’re buying the fancy, brand name! ANNNNND, the recipe I’m posting is for one flavour of them. You could add any spices you like!
Have I convinced you yet? If not, make a batch of these and THEN tell me 🙂 They are a little spicy, so if you don’t like spice, just make them with the garlic salt.
