Chick peas for Fitchicks

Caving all things spicy? One thing I always do is listen to my body. I believe that there is a reason your body craves things and it is important to listen to it.
I made these yummy spicy roasted chick peas.
Crunchy little spicy morsels!

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • Coconut Oil or Olive Oil- 2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Chilli powder / Paprika / Curry Powder – 1 tsp
  • 1 1/2 gloves crushed garlic
  • Turmeric – 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon juice – 1 tsp

METHOD

  • Open can and drain the liquid completely, I dried them on a paper towel remove the moisture from the chickpeas. Make sure they are as dry as you can get them.
  • Preheat the oven to 220 deg C.
  • In a bowl combine oil, salt, chilli, garlic, turmeric and lemon juice with chickpeas. Allow to marinate for 10-15mins.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread the chickpeas. Bake it in 220 deg C for 35-40 mins. Check after 15mins and toss to avoid from burning.
NOTE – Rather cook a little longer as they are much better when they are SUPER CRUNCHY. I have tried these without the oil ( when I was on a “fat free” diet – but adding good fats to my diet means I made them with coconut oil and it made a HUGE difference)
  • Take it out of the oven and allow it to cool completely to get the crunch.
