Roasted Curry Spiced Chickpeas

Roasted Curry Spiced Chickpeas

A bag of chickpea snack from the store is between $4-5 for a couple of servings. Make your own for a quarter of the price and spice it up as you like. Aside from snacking these tasty morsels go great in a salad or add some crunch to a wrap.


Chickpeas are abundant in fiber for healthy digestion as well as an excellent plant-based source for protein and iron.

Ingredients: 

1 t curry powder
1 t cumin powder
1 t sea salt
½ t cayenne powder

2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed well

Method:

1. Rinse chickpeas well and dry them on paper towels.

2. Preheat oven to 400°F.

3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour chickpeas onto pan and drizzle with avocado oil. Toss to coat well.

4. Mix remaining spices and sea salt in a small bowl and sprinkle over chickpeas. Toss again to distribute the spices evenly.
