I love chickpeas and have been obsessing about these little gems since I was pregnant with my first daughter. Chickpeas are versatile and I use them when making hummus, in stews and pasta sauces and salads.
Chickpeas are good source of protein and just one cup (200g) contains 39 grams of protein! They also contain fibre which is good for gut health, helps to balance blood sugar and are good for health health.
This recipe is so easy and gives a spicy twist to my usual chickpea salad.
Spicy Roasted Chickpea Salad
- 1 can of chickpeas (400g)
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp paprika powder
- Sprinkle of chilli flakes
- half tablespoon olive oil
- Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
- Handful of salad leaves
- Dollop of hummus
Preheat oven to 180C. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and put in a bowl. Add spices and tomatoes. Mix well. Put on oven tray and roast about 35 minutes. Rip some salad leaves to your plate and pour chickpeas and tomatoes on top. I love serving this with dollop of hummus. You could also add some sliced avocado.
