Nutrition Tuesdays and The Greatest Snack on Earth

Quick-Cast-Final-300x263This week, we’re talking chickpeas.  We’re seasoning them (with real spices and not monosodium glutamate, right corn nuts?), oiling them, lime-juicing them, and roasting them.  The whole prep process takes 5 minutes. Then, just stick ’em in the oven…simple as that.

 

Recipe of the Week: Hot Roasted Chickpeas

Ingredients:

  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, thoroughly drained and rinsed (about 3 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice from one lime
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Place all ingredient in a large bowl and toss urntil thoroughly mixed.
  3. Spread the chickpeas in a single, even layer on baking sheet and bake until crisp, about 40-45 minutes.
  4. Try about 1 cup for a snack.  These may also work well as a spicy, salty fuel option for long rides.  Keep it to just 1/4 -1/2 cup or so at a time.  They are a great source of carbs and sodium, but the extra fiber may be too much for some cyclists while riding.
