Sometimes we crave a salty and crunchy snack and settle with what we have in rich, for example, chips. But is there a healthy snack to indulge us?
Yes, there is! Chickpeas are a superfood with great health benefits. They are super-rich in fiber, and they help with weight loss and blood sugar. And baked they turn into a crunchy mini-balls of heaven! Any more reasons to try this snack? Oh! and they are gluten-free and vegan.
The first step is to hydrate the Chickpeas with plenty of water for at least 12 hs and strain. (Though it may seem tedious, you can hydrate as much as you can in one go and use it to make hummus or falafel and burgers to batch cooking and freeze)
Boil the chickpeas until they are done, strain, and let it cool.
- Preheat the oven to 180º/356ºF. Put the chickpeas in a bowl and flavor to your taste. You can use salt, pepper, smoked curry and olive oil ( we recommend you to use 1 tbsp of virgin olive oil if you want to make it low-fat)
- In a baking dish with a little oil bake for 15-20 minutes until they are crispy.
