Roasted Chick Pea Croutons
I’ve never really been a fan of anything involving chick peas, so I was hesitant when I saw ppl replacing croutons with roasted chick peas, but it looked so good I wanted to give it a try and I’m so glad I did!!! These are the perfect addition to a salad and add so many extra nutrients!! Found this recipe from @salads4lunch
2 15 oz cans chick peas
Salt & pepper
Preheat your oven to 400. Drain the chick peas and lie out on a towel. Then peel the little shell off each chick pea, very tedious but I read this is necessary to get that perfect crunchy texture. Dry the chick peas thoroughly, then spread out on a baking sheet lined with tin foil and bake for 15 minutes. Once complete, pull from the oven, spray the chick peas with olive oil baking spray and sprinkle on all your seasonings. Give them a good shake and return to the oven for another 10 mins. Once that time is up, pull out and shake again and bake for 10 more mins. Turn off your oven and let them cool with the oven door cracked open. Store in an airtight container!
