Are you noticing the changes with the fall season? Leaves are changing colours, the evenings are cooler, it's time to layer and enjoy cozy nights. This recipe is perfect for this time of year.
This recipe holds a special place in my heart. Years ago I had the amazing chance to go the Philippines (see my previous post about this experience) to work as a volunteer with a humanitarian aid organization. I lived there among the people and culture for 3 months. One of the snacks I loved while I was there was cooked chick peas that were flavoured with curry and salt. You would buy them in a clear baggie and pop them in your mouth like popcorn. To this day I love chick peas and always remember the Philippines.
Chick peas are so good for you for many reasons. They are high in protein, low in fat, rich in zinc and folic acid and a healthy source of carbohydrates.
Protein Rich Snack Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups of raw chick peas (makes about 3 cups cooked) You can buy them in a can but they are so high sodium and honestly the raw taste so much better for this recipe. I tried them both with raw and cooked and the canned are more dense and mushier (still good just not the ultimate that they could be)
- 1 1/2 curry powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 2 TBSP of olive oil for your pan
- Cast Iron pan
- Salt to taste
If you don't want to crisp them in a pan you could try (after step 3) putting your chick peas in a pan and baking them in the oven or a toaster oven. I'm planning to try that next.
