essentials: chickpeas

10 Feb

Chickpeas may have got me through university intact. So healthy, so easy. (Part of my exam super-food plan, which included salmon, spinach and blueberries. And white chocolate Magnums… I did pass, in the end!?)

  • chickpeas tossed with olive oil, black pepper and grapefruit segments
  • blend with yoghurt and lemon for simple houmous, add harissa or thyme for extra depth
  • roast with chili, black pepper and rough sea salt for better-than-crisps
  • mix with baked-soft aubergine for instant filling curry

    Yum, yum, yum and yum 🙂 I gotta try those roasted fellas! Is there any oil involved or just the seasonings you mention?

      Just enough olive oil to make the seasonings stick (heh) but experiment and see!
