Roasted Chickpeas


This roasted chickpeas recipe offers a deliciously addictive alternative to croutons.

Coated in a variety of health supportive spices and roasted to perfection, you’ll probably end up popping quite a few of these in your mouth before you put them on your salad.

You can cook them longer for an even drier, crispier texture, however, I prefer this sort of in-between state, when they are still a bit soft in the center.


Chickpeas: A delicious plant-based protein that is particularly beneficial for digestive health…they contain up to 75% insoluble fiber, so that what goes in, will come out if you catch my drift. If you’re feeling a little backed up, try adding more chickpeas to your diet.

Turmeric: One of the most studied spices, turmeric is noted in numerous scientific studies to show anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, and anticancer activity.

Cumin: Cumin not only adds flavor, it supports healthy digestion. It contains a variety of potent antioxidants as well as iron.

Paprika: While made from a pepper, paprika is more sweet than spicy. and provides over 20% of your daily Vitamin A needs per teaspoon.

Cayenne: Any sort of hot chile pepper, including cayenne, supports the metabolism and may aid in fat burn.
