Trainer Favorites: The Glorious Chickpea - Falafel, Roasted, and Hummus (Oh My!)
There are a plethora of healthy recipes scattered all over the Internet and filling countless cookbooks. But sometimes, you want something you know will be tasty, tried-and-true. "Trainer Favorites" are nutritionally-dense recipes that my husband and I have tried (he, sometimes dubiously), and found that we really enjoy!
These make a great snack as well! I'll pull extra patties out of the refrigerator for a quick snack on the go!
Speaking of snacks, here's an awesome chickpea snack to try:
The Kitchn's Roasted Curried Chickpeas with Rosemary and Thyme
The below recipe is found here on the Kitchn's website:
Just. Can't. Stop. Eating. Those roasted chickpeas are so good! And homemade hummus is even easier: Pour 2 cans of rinsed, drained chickpeas into your food processor and add a dollop of plain yogurt, a squeeze of lemon juice, a clove or two of garlic, salt, pepper, and drizzle olive oil to consistency. Easy-peasy! Experiment adding in spices to your liking - Curry powder? Paprika? Fresh basil and oregano? The possibilities are endless!
How do you like your chickpeas?
