If you’ve never had oven roasted chickpeas before, then you are really missing out! With a Turkish spice blend and a dash of olive oil for extra crispiness, these spicy roasted chickpeas are a true delight! While incredibly delicious on their own (they make a great healthy snack), they also make a divine accompaniment to this coconut ginger rice, and are never not delicious with a garlic sauce.

When I threw this little fusion bowl together, I admittedly found myself very pleased with the melding of flavors & textures, and I certainly wasn’t complaining about the aesthetics either!

If you are looking to kick things up a notch in the flavor department, and want a fully satisfying, healthy, and beautiful meal, look no further–this delicious dish will transport your taste buds to blissful contentment…
