Remember the turmeric-soaked turmeric noodles I used recently in this pad thai recipe? Well, these turmeric-soaked chickpeas build on that idea. I wanted to figure out a way to work turmeric into the chickpeas, and it was actually pretty straight-forward, thankfully. You can make them on the stovetop. You can make them in an Instant Pot – I tested both approaches. Pick whichever method you prefer!
I’ve been using these chickpeas in all sorts of preparations, and I thought I needed to isolate the recipe on its own, so I can point to the technique when I post a recipe that uses them. You can use them in a lot of recipes that call for chickpeas.
I’ve used these in hummus, in my favorite chana masala, and in meals like the one you see below. I’ll post that recipe next! Working on it now. All in all these chickpeas are a great way to easily integrate a bit more turmeric into your everyday eats.
