Given I don’t eat a lot of stand-in meat products, I rely heavily on legumes to be the star of my meals (and protein filler!) If you’ve hung around long enough on the site, you probably know that chickpeas are my favorite. These versatile legumes can transform into so many different meals and they soak up flavor to push vegetarian meals over the top. I’ve been making spiced chickpeas in some form or another for as long as I can remember. They are simple, ready in 20 minutes or less, and can be a dinner saver when I have nothing planned. I still remember my first version of these chickpeas contained buffalo sauce (delicious still) but I’ve found the recipe below to be more adaptable to spices and meals. A perfect addition to component cooking!
