One thing I love: finding cheap food that is delicious and good for my body. I see these crunchy chick peas a lot now in Whole Foods, and they seem a little pricy for how cheap beans are. So I started to make them myself, and it costs about $1. A can of chick peas is usually less than a dollar, even when organic. The rest of the spices needed I happen to have at home, so I'm good to go.
If you're craving something crunchy and delicious, try out these crunchy chick peas!
- 1 can of (washed) chick peas (15oz)
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 tsp Turmeric
- 1/2 tsp Paprika
- Sprinkle of Garlic Powder
- Sprinkle of Salt
Mix it all up in a bowl, then pour onto a baking sheet. You want enough room so the chick peas are flat, not bunched up on top of each other. Then bake at 350• for 30-35mins. Remove from the oven and let cool.
For ultimate crunch and flavor, it's best to eat them right away (once they've cooled). They don't store very well.
