Curried Crispy Chickpeas

Recipe:

Curried Crispy Chickpeas

Perfect protein packed snack buzzing with flavours.

Makes 20 x 40g portion
Total Time: 2hr 55min
Cooking: 45min
Prep: 10min + 2hr marinading

Ingredients

  • 800g of drained chickpeas
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 40g of a red onion
  • 10g of peeled ginger
  • 5g of turmeric ground
  • 5g teaspoon of paprika
  • 5g teaspoon of cumin
  • 10ml of tamari
  • Juice of 1 whole lime 20ml
  • 10ml of cold pressed olive oil
  • 5g of ground coriander
  • 5ml of balsamic vinegar
  • 5ml of apple cider vinegar
  • 2g of dried chili flakes
  • 20g of nutritional yeast flakes

Method

  • Firstly, drain the chickpeas and place them into a bowl (this recipe will last for a while as its dry, so it is always worth batch making this and keeping in in an air tight jar)
  • Place all of the ingredients for the marinade into a blender and blend for 1-2 minutes until it is completely smooth
  • Then pour your marinade onto your chickpeas in the mixing bowl and leave for 2 hours covered with a tea towel. This will just allow the marinade flavor to soak right into the chickpeas
  • After the chickpeas have been marinaded place them onto the baking trays (lined with parchment) with the marinade liquid still with them as well.
  • Place them into the oven
  • Bake on 180c for 45minutes until the chickpeas are totally dry and a crunchy texture
  • Make sure you are giving them a shake and a move around every 10 minutes or so when they are in the oven to make sure that they don’t stick to the tray or to each other

Equipment needed:

High speed blender, Large mixing bowl, 2 baking trays, Oven

  • Bake on 165c for 20minutes

Equipment needed:

Oven, Muffin tins or silicon muffin mould, Mixing bowl x2, Whisk, Spoons

Additions:

There are so many variations on this recipe and the base recipe can pretty much always stay the same. Here are a few that I have tried:

Baked apple – Make an apple puree and put it through the muffin batter

Sticky toffee muffins – Make a caramel with dates to go on top after they have been cooked, you could even put a spoon full of it in the top of the batter before they get cooked too

Chocolate muffins – just simply add a table spoon of cacao powder to the mix and then make a chocolate sauce to go on the top after they have been cook

Top Tips:

Make the flaxseed eggs well in advance so that you are able to just make this recipe really quick and not have to wait around for the eggs to be ready.
