Chickpeas are one of my favorites! Definitely a go-to during the week.

Incredibly versatile and tasty, as well as a great source of fiber and plant-based protein.

From falafel, to hummus, to flour, to simply roasted, the list goes on.

My favorite chickpea recipe is actually quite simple.

Roasted with some spices, and served with a variety of other veggies.

I prefer them on the spicier side, so I bring some ground chipotle pepper to bring the spicy, smoky kick!

Then toss in some fresh parsley for some brightness and you have chickpeas you have have on their own, on top of salads, or as a snack! The choice is yours!
