Ingredients

  • 400g tin of chickpeas
  • 200g plain dairy free yoghurt (I use Alpro plain unsweetened)
  • 1 tbsp medium curry powder
  • 1 tbsp mango chutney
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Method

  1. Drain and rinse the tin of chickpeas.
  2. In a bowl, combine the yoghurt, curry powder, chutney, lemon juice and salt and pepper and mix well.
  3. Finally add the drained chickpeas into the yoghurt mixture and mix to combine everything.

You can also add a handful of sultanas to this recipe to give it that true ‘coronation chicken’ taste, but I’m not much of a fan so I leave them out!

Layer onto fresh bread with salad leaves and enjoy! This recipe also tastes great in a wrap or over a big hearty salad.

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas are hands down one of my favourite snacks. I always have a stockpile of tins of chickpeas in my cupboard, and use a lot of their aquafaba (bean water) in my baking, so find myself making these at least once a week.

They work perfectly on their own as a crunchy snack, a great sandwich filling, in a wrap, stuffed in a sweet potato.. the possibilities are really endless!

Ingredients

  • 1 tin of chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Method 

  1. Preheat your oven to 180c (200c fan or gas mark 4) and drain your chickpeas from the tin, rinsing with cold water.
  2. Add chickpeas to a bowl along with the oil and seasonings, and shake up well to get them evenly coated.
  3. Spread the coated chickpeas evenly over a baking tray and place into the oven for 40 minutes, removing half way to shake them up.
  4. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and enjoy however you like! I keep mine in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
