RECIPE : Chickpeanuts


These wonderful, tasty, crunchy nibbles are delicious with a drink, as a little snack or yummy scattered onto salads.
The chickpeas are roasted in soy sauce which forms a 'marmitey'-flavoured coating and a crunchy texture.
My little chickpeanuts are low in fat and extremely high in protein so although they may seem high in smartpoints, they are a healthy little snack.

Of course, the best thing about these snacks is that if you are following the NoCount plan they are entirely free-otherwise they work out to 9sp/approx.550kcal for the whole amount, or 5sp/225kcal for half.

***

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas6

YOU WILL NEED:

400g(242g drained)can chickpeas in water
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon garlic puree
(swap for 1 clove crushed fresh garlic for NoCount)
3 teaspoons low salt soy sauce

***


Drain the chickpeas, rinse thoroughly under running water in a sieve to discard the 'soapy' liquid, then drain on some kitchen paper, blotting to remove excess water.


Pop the drained chickpeas into a mixing bowl, add the oil, garlic puree and 1 teaspoon of the soy sauce. Mix well to coat thoroughly.


Spread out the seasoned chickpeas on foil in an even layer on a baking sheet.
Roast for around 40-50 minutes checking and turning every 10-15 minutes. Add the remaining soy sauce towards the end of the cooking time, mix well and continue to roast until the chickpeas have a crispy coating.


Allow to cool slightly before serving.
They should have this gorgeous toasted appearance and will crisp up even more as they cool down.


Delicious!

Hi Janey
After reading WW mag I've started following your brill blog, fantastic recipes! In the May issue of WW mag you mentioned a Jaffa creation using choc shot liquid with clementine. I've tried to find the recipe on your blog but can't find it. Can you tell me where to find it
Thanks
Tina

Hi Tina-so funny! These flippant comments we make! The dessert is so simple it isn't even blog-worthy which is why you couldn't find it! Literally peel a clementine, pop into a bowl...top with Total 0%fat Greek yoghurt and Orange Spice Chocshot! That's it! Love Janey xx
