Chickpea Pops!


Today I discovered a delicious, healthy alternative to popcorn! Crunchy chickpea balls that are delicious to snack on, and could be an interesting addition to green salad.




  • If you’re using canned chickpeas, make sure to drain them thoroughly before use, otherwise prepare your chickpeas as per usual.
  • Place your chickpeas in a baking tray and under the grill in the oven.
  • Leave to grill, stirring every 5-10 minutes
  • Grill until chickpeas are golden brown and crunchy. Nyum!
