Turmeric roasted chickpeas. V. GF.
The mighty chickpea! I always just relegate chickpeas to my salad or in hummus recipes. I occassionally remember roasting them up but typically prompted by someone or something. However, once roasted, I am slightly addicted to their crunchy texture.
After meeting with my sports dietitian last week she mentioned whipping these up to add to my salads for extra protein. Plus they are packed with potassium, fiber, B6 and magnesium. I then started to think of all of my knee swelling last week and remembered adding more turmeric to my diet (typically added to my smoothies). Turmeric is also packed with iron, vitamin B6 and fiber. My brainchild was born. These have a bit of an Indian spin with a bit of heat. Great snacking idea. Perfect for lunches. Toppers for soup or salads. I keep a bag in my car for a quick snack when needed. About 100 calories for 1/2 cup – these beat any other greasy option out there. PLUS that protein! Great post workout fuel for hungry muscles. This recipe is super forgiving with the spices you add so add more or less of what you love. My recipe is a mere guideline.
