Versatile Chickpeas

Versatile Chickpeas

So apparently you can roast chickpeas and make them crunchy and look like a snack. I saw one of these recipes and I was like: "Wow! Gotta try this out!" And then I saw that it was divinely paired with Sriracha and I was like: "Wow! Gotta try this out right now!". So I did. It looked good, tasted like a spicy implosion and revealed to me chickpeas not only make hummus and stuff that requires them to be crushed into oblivion.

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

  • a can of chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • juice of half a lime
  • some lime zest for decoration
  • 2 tsp of sriracha (or more if you like it spiceeey)
  • salt

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

  • Pre-heat your oven at 180°C.
  • Firstly let the chickpeas drain and pat them dry with some kitchen roll.
  • For the sauce, basically chuck the olive oil, lime and sriracha together in a big bowl and whisk together. Add the chickpeasto the bowl and cover them with the sauce. Then, cover a large oven tray with a sheet of baking paper and spread the chickpeas out onto the sheet and sprinkle some salt over them.
  • Bake for more or less 25 minutes and check them once in a while to make sure they don't pulverize ;)
  • When they are done, serve them in a bowl and use the lime zest to add a touch of colour.

Good While still warm ;)
