Roasted Chickpeas

This year Ive become an addict of beans and chickpeas! I have always loved making homemade fresh hummus. But lately Ive been created roasted chickpeas and other beans as a healthy snack option between meals or throw them on top of your salads. The best part is they are so easy and cheap to make! 1 can of organic chickpeas is approx $1.60!  

You can cover them in any type of health supporting spices and herbs. 

My favourite combo of spices for this little recipe is - Turmeric, Cayenne Pepper, S&P, Cumin, Chilli and Ginger.

But if you dont like hot spices you can use anything else, play around with combos!

I cook them for a while so they become super crispy, but you can get them a little softer in the middle too. 

Chickpeas are an amazing plant based protein thats is awesome for digestive health. They contain about 75% insoluble fibre... so its great for helping with keeping yourself regular.

I use turmeric in most of my food so it wouldn't make sense for me not to add to this dish. Its an amazing anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial.

Cumin is probably my second fav spice - its adds so much flavour but also helps support healthy digestion along with a good boost of iron.

Cayenne is great for supporting the metabolism - aiding in fat loss. 

Ingredients: 1 can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained)

1 tsp of turmeric

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp chilli

Black Pepper and Rock Salt to taste

How to: 

Preheat oven to 175degrees.

In a bowl mix the spices and rinsed chick peas together until well coated, (you can use small amount of olive oil here if needed) - but i prefer a dry roast.

Line a tray with baking paper and bake for about 20mins, move them around and bake another 10-20mins. 

Create a big batch and store in glass jar in the fridge!
