Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

by Destini on March 19, 2013

I hope everyone had a safe and fun St. Patrick’s Day! I know I sure did!! I saw some of you made my Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes!! Sure made my weekend :) I have been getting a lot of tweet requests for some healthy snacks that you guys can easily make and are super tasty .  Something I am really obsessed with right now is roasted chickpeas. I had pinned a recipe on Pinterest the other week and knew right away it was something I would have to recreate. It is really something that is super easy to do, and the flavors are endless. So far this is my favorite recipe oh and it’s Vegan too :)

Ingredients: Yields 2 cups

Recipe adapted from Steamy Kitchen
  • 2 cups of chickpeas, drained and rinsed (or soaked)
  • 2tbsp evoo
  • 1/2tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4tsp sea salt

Directions: Preheat oven to 400f.  If you used canned chickpeas, rinse with cold water and pat dry, or if you soaked dry chickpeas, also pat dry, remove any skins. Place chickpeas in a bowl, toss in the evoo and spices, shake till all the chickpeas look covered. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 30-40min. Let them stand for about 5-10min that way they won’t be soft from the steam.

Yesterday  I took the day off to spend it with my girl friend from Quebec and her three month old daughter. It was love at first sight. I took HINDEREDS of photos. For those of you that follow me on Instagram saw my rapid posting :).  Taking photos of a baby is a little different than taking photos of food. But I think we got some great shots.

Tonight is core day at the gym. It may still be a snowy nightmare here(I am completely done with all this snow! I cannot pretend that I feel any different at this point) but Summer will come and I want to be ready for it.

Question:

Hmm… I love roasted chickpeas, I make maple cinnamon ones and put them on summery salads. So good! For snacks I like plain Greek yogurt and almond butter or Larabras right now.
I need to start running, so happy for daylight till almost 8pm, now for this snow to leave!

They are great and super filling. I have to be careful of how much I eat because they will ruin my dinner! I am thinking of making a sweeter kind suggested in a below comment
