For those flavor loving readers, the recipe for spicy roasted chickpeas (aka Garbanzo beans) should fit the bill. I tried these for the first time recently and absolutely loved them. They can be served as a perfectly healthy snack, just cooled off a bit, as they a crunchy, spicy, and so so good and easy to make.
Or you can serve them as the side, the carb of the meal, as I did with tangerine roasted turkey breast and raw shredded carrots. The carrots were a delightful, fresh tasting addition to the meal, balancing the hotness of the beans, making it all around a well balanced and healthy meal. I had added some spices to the turkey breast as well, cinnamon, coriander spice, paprika, and chili, with salt and pepper of course, and the slices of the tangerine on the top of the turkey breast, into a roasting bag, and in the oven.
Hope you enjoy these meal ideas and get to roast some beans this weekend. The fun part of it is, there really isn't any fancy ingredients, most of the spices are in your cupboards, or are easy to find in a grocery store.
Til next time
