I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m a bad snacker.
I tend to fall for the trap of unhealthy, un-filling snacks, and most of the time it’s just because I don’t know what to make just to snack on, or I didn’t prepare well.
I did come up with a pretty fabulous snack this week that I think you’ll love.
I’m pretty fond of chickpeas.
I mostly love them in an amazing hummus I make every once in a while. I decided to change up my normal notions of mashed chickpeas and tahini, and turn my chickpeas into a crunchy, flavorful snack.
In walked these babies!
I love these crunchy chickpeas for a few reasons:
1) They’re super crunchy, who doesn’t love that in a snack?
2) They absorb flavors really well when they’re baked, and dried out a little
3) They’re so simple and as we all know, I am 100% about simplicity.
I’ve been eating them by themselves, but I imagine you could do something like: throw these babies into a salad to replace your croutons. That seems like a natural choice for me.
