My favorite thing about chickpeas is how versatile they are. Crisp them up in the oven or in a pan and season them with whatever you have in your pantry. You can morph these to any style of cuisine – in curries, salad, rice bowls – you name it! This version of crispy chickpeas is served over quinoa and topped with feta and dill, but you could easily use rice or couscous.
- 1 cup quinoa
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 can chickpeas, rinsed
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- sprinkle of feta cheese
- handful of fresh dill
In a pot, add your quinoa and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, and let quinoa simmer with the lid on for 15 minutes.
While your quinoa is simmering, heat oil in a pan and add the chickpeas. Season with garlic salt, black pepper, and cayenne.
Let chickpeas saute for about 10 minutes or until they reach desired crispiness. Make you stir about once a minute to keep them cooking evenly.
