Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

by Gilad

Quick And Healthy Snacks
 

Crunchy and spicy is a combination that we love in our food! Bake your own crispy chickpeas for a tasty and healthy snack.

INGREDIENTS 
  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 2 to 4 tsp spices such as chili powder, curry powder, garam masala, cumin, smoked paprika, rosemary, thyme, or any of your favorite herbs or spices
 
METHOD 
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). 
Rinse and drain the chickpeas by pouring chickpeas into a strainer and rinsing with running water. 
Pat the chickpeas very dry with a clean dishtowel or paper towels.  They should feel dry to touch. 
Toss the chickpeas with olive oil and salt, and spread the chickpeas out in an even layer on the baking sheet.
Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 20 - 30 minutes until golden and crisp, checking every 10 minutes and giving the pan a shake.
Toss the chickpeas with the spices.
Besides eating these chickpeas as a snack, you can toss them in salads or sprinkle over soup in place of croutons.

by Gilad

Healthy Sides: Cilantro and Lime Cauliflower Rice 
 
 
If you haven't been fully converted to cauliflower rice yet, you need to try our Cilantro & Lime Cauliflower Rice! 

INGREDIENTS
  • ½ head of small cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 1 scallions, diced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Handful fresh chopped cilantro
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. For the cauliflower rice, roughly chop cauliflower into florets, then place cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice or couscous.  Don't over process or it will get mushy. 
  2. In a pan over medium heat, add olive oil, scallions and garlic and sauté about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft. 
  3. Add the cauliflower "rice" to the pan and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and place in a medium bowl and toss with fresh cilantro and lime juice.
