Protein fills you up for longer and helps to speed up your metabolism, so if you're in need of a snack think protein. You'd be amazed how many yummy protein snack recipes there are, such as roasted chickpeas. There are various ways of flavouring them, why not try this recipe below.
Makes about 1 cup:
1 can chickpeas
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon Nutritional Yeast (or Parmesan)
1/4 teaspoon red chilli flakes
1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas, then pat them dry.
2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the chickpeas, oil, and seasonings. Mix until everything is evenly coated. Pour the chickpeas onto a baking pan covered in foil and shake gently until the chickpeas are in one layer.
3. Roast at 450/230 degrees for 10-15 minutes, toss, and roast for another 10-15 minutes until golden and beginning to brown.
4. Turn off the oven, crack it open and let the chickpeas cool in there for another 20 minutes (this will keep them even crispier!). Serve room temperature as a snack or toss into a salad.
