Why I love chickpeas
The most obvious answer is they taste so freaked good! And they are so versatile countless recipes where chickpea is the main event with, burgers, roasts, dips and you can mile it into a flour and the opportunities are endless!
I love this recipe because I actually use it as a snack for when I was something and don’t know what it is. Have you ever had that kind of craving.. the one where your binge eating in your pantry because nothing you find is what your craving but you juts go at it thinking you’ll be satisfied… no? Is it just me then…. oups. Well more often then not my craving subsides after I have a nice batch of these yummy little roasted beans! And because there so nutritious I am comfortable With eating a whole cans worth of these savoury roasted chickpeas!
This yummy treat is actually very simple you’ll need a can of chickpeas. Fresh thyme, coconut oil salt and fresh garlic. I took a mortar and pestle and made mashed up the garlic with the fresh thyme leaves adding the salt and massaging it in. Then I combines the coconut oil and toss in a bowl with the chickpeas. Coat well and then place in a pan. I left the chickpeas roasting in the oven for 45 minutes because I really like it o be crunchy. This is to your own tast so for this I say keep watching the oven at the 30 minute mark to see how roasted and crunchy you desire your chickpeas.
Once they are ready and your able to touch them without burning your hands they are ready to eat! Toss them to a salad or set out a bowl filled with these yummy Savoury Roasted Chickpeas and enjoy my friends!
