Over the last couple of months, when I have reached out to ask about the types of recipes my followers want to see, I had a ton of requests for savoury snack ideas. This got me thinking…
This Chili Lime Roasted Chickpea recipe was the end result!
Chickpeas are a great way to pack in a ton of nutrients without a lot of prep or thought required. Did you know that 1/2 cup of chickpeas provide:
So now that we know they contain lots of nutrients, we need to make them tasty enough to enjoy as a snack! Cumin has slowly become one of my favourite spices to use in a variety of dishes. It pairs so well with a number of other herbs and flavours, just like it does here with the lime zest, chili powder and garlic.
NOTE: If you don’t have garlic salt, you can just use garlic powder and add in a pinch of salt to really enhance the flavours.
The texture of these roasted chickpeas can vary, depending on the cook time. This is completely up to you and your preferences. If you would rather a crispier chickpea, add a couple of minutes to the cooking time. This is also outlined in the recipe instructions for you to follow.
Whether these Chili Lime Roasted Chickpeas are consumed as a snack on their own or as a crispy component to a salad or nourish bowl, you are sure to love these flavour-packed pulses. Just store them in an airtight container once they have cooled and enjoy!
