These are seriously delicious and once you chomp you won’t stop. They’re a healthy and filling spicy snack, and so easy to make. Eat them on their own as a snack (great for after school), or add them to a salad or in place of croutons in a bowl or soup. Chickpeas deliver 6 g of fiber in a 1/2 cup/80 g serving, along with 7.5 grams of protein, 140 mcg of folate, 2.4 mg of iron and 40 mg of magnesium. Plus turmeric and black pepper enhance their flavor and the nutrient status.
Chickpeas may be stored in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed bag or other container. They will keep for 10 to 14 days.
Spices – could use rosemary, thyme or dried oregano as a herb flavor
