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.

Ingredients

Coconut Ginger Rice

  • 1 cup brown basmati rice
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Spicy Turkish Roasted Chickpeas

  • 2 cups chickpeas cooked
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground coriander

Garlic Yogurt Drizzle

  • 6 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt for vegan option, this dish works great with a coconut milk based yogurt!
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Rice

  • Combine all Coconut Ginger Rice ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, turn to low & simmer until done (in this case, the rice I used took 40 minutes).

Spicy Turkish Roasted Chickpeas

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Combine cooked, rinsed, drained chickpeas (that have been patted dry) in a bowl with oil & spices. Toss to coat.
  • Place chickpeas on a parchment lined cookie sheet & bake for 30 minutes, or until desired crispiness is achieved, giving the pan a shake halfway through.

Garlic Yogurt Drizzle

  • Whisk all of the above ingredients together until smooth. Drizzle with a small spoon, or serve as a dipping sauce accompaniment.
  • Top off your bowl with a sprinkle of dried or fresh cilantro, then dig in!
  • Enjoy!
