Garlic & Turmeric Roasted Chickpeas Recipe & Video


Looking for a bowl of something crunchy (but not too sinful) for a night binge-watching your favorite TV show? Hosting a party and want to set out some healthy munchies for your guests to enjoy? Need a protein-rich, on-the-go snack for your bag or desk on a busy day? Whatever the reason, these spicy roasted chickpeas are the perfect solution. High in fiber, protein and nutrients like iron and potassium but low in saturated fat, they offer an alternative to all those salty, high-fat, empty-calorie snack options you may find in the chip aisle at the grocery store.

Yield: 8 servings (1/2 cup each)

Ingredients for your Kroger shopping list:
2 – 15-ounce cans chickpeas
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ teaspoons turmeric
1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon curry powder
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat oven to 400º F. Drain, rinse and dry chickpeas, using a paper towel to remove excess water. Place dry chickpeas in a large bowl. Add two tablespoons olive oil and stir to coat. Transfer chickpeas to a baking sheet, making sure they are in a single layer. Roast chickpeas 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through. Chickpeas are done when crisp and golden. Combine turmeric, garlic powder, curry powder, ground pepper and sea salt in medium bowl and add roasted chickpeas. Toss chickpeas to coat evenly. Serve warm or cool.

COOK’S NOTE: In place of the turmeric, garlic powder, curry powder, ground pepper and sea salt, try one of the spice mixes below for a different flavor of roasted chickpeas.
