Replacing Chips with Chickpeas

Today is a short blog post because who doesn’t love a quick and easy post for a quick and easy recipe? These chickpeas are sure to curb your appetite, while being easy enough to make that you can watch an X-Files episode on the side.

These chickpeas have all the crunch and satisfaction, but with less of the guilt that comes with downing a whole bag of Kettle chips – even if the packaging says it contains 25% less in sodium. Continue reading “Replacing Chips with Chickpeas”
