I haven’t posted in a while but I had to share this smoked chickpea recipe. It’s super easy and a perfect snack for the whole family.
1 can chickpeas, washed and drained
1 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp maple syrup
4 tsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to Gas 6/400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peal the skins off the chickpeas (this is a bit time consuming but it’s worth it, I promise) and ensure the resulting peas are thoroughly dried with a cloth.
In a bowl, mix the wet ingredients then add the chickpeas. Give a good mix so that the chickpeas are well coated. In a fresh bowl mix the dried ingredients. Pour the chickpeas into the bowl and give a good mix to give each chickpea a generous coating. Transfer the chickpeas to the prepared baking tray. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 40 minutes or until the chickpeas are crispy. You may need to give them an occasional mix.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool (if you can restrain yourself) then store in an air tight container for up to seven days.
