Roasted chickpeas are one of my favourite salad and soup toppers ever! So simple to make, crunchy, and incredibly satisfying, you will want to keep a container of these on hand at all times. They are also a great snack to send to school in your kid’s lunch boxes because they are nut-free and fun to eat.
High in magnanese, folate, fiber, protein, iron, zinc, and low on the glycemic index, chickpeas are also great for keeping energy levels high and blood sugar levels stable.
Just make sure to work your way up to eating large amounts of them, because as you may have heard, beans are the magical fruit, and the more you eat, the more you toot. The good news is the tooting decreases as your body gets used to the extra fiber, so just make sure to take it slow, Mario!
