Grain Free & Vegan
Watch out - these super easy, high fiber snacks are additive and a great way to satisfy a salty craving! These normally soft, mushy beans become crispy, crunchy bites after you roast them -YUM! Just grab a can of chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), toss them in oil and add your favorite spice combination. Then roast them in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until crunchy.
The first time I made these, I ate the whole batch in two "snacks". Yep...sure did...so...maybe you will want to double or triple the recipe?! You can eat them just as snacks (highly recommended) or toss them into other meals to bulk up the protein, fiber, and flavors - salads, soups, casseroles, and stir fries are all great vessels to host these crunchy beans. We especially love these on salads this time of year, try them on our: Roasted Vegetable & Quinoa Tabbouleh, Spring Pea Salad with Roasted Fennel & Chickpeas, or Dairy Free Caesar Salad.
