A deliciously tasty and nutritious snack, with just 4 simple ingredients!
Chickpeas tend to be used as the base for hummus, but they are so versatile and can be used for so much more!
I’ve been experimenting with chickpeas and chickpea liquid for a client, and had an abundance of chickpeas left over. I’m not one for waste, so I used some of them to create this tasty snack!
I really love chickpeas as they are high in protein and fibre and packed with vitamins and minerals. They’re also great for IBS sufferers such as myself to up their fibre intake without it causing issues.
With this recipe, the chickpeas turn into crunchy bites bursting with flavour. They’re great as snacks, sprinkling on soups, using in salads or crunching up to add to breadcrumbs when coating fish or chicken.
Sounds lovely doesn’t it!
You will need:
- 1 can of chickpeas – drained and chickpeas reserved
