Roasted Chickpeas with Turmeric
Roasted chickpeas are one of my favorite snacks to make at home. Not only are chickpeas loaded with plant-based protein, but they are actually an ideal food for weight loss.
Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) rank very low on the glycemic index. They have a glycemic index ranking of 33! That’s way lower than kidney beans or other beans in general.
Chickpeas could also help you eat less. A recent study found that participants were more satisfaction with their diet when garbanzo beans were included, and they consumed fewer processed foods. Additionally, the dietary fiber in garbanzo beans helps keep blood sugar low and discourages the body from storing fat…yes!!
The whole family will love these because they are salty, crunchy and just delicious. Every time I make a batch of my roasted chickpeas with turmeric, the entire bowl is empty in a few minutes. No joke!
Another great thing about this simple snack is that you can use any of your favorite herbs and spices. The sky is the limit. Make them salty, make them spicy, or give them a Mediterranean twist.
