recipe | fried chickpeas

I think chickpeas are one of my favorite foods. And I love to eat them fried. They are simple to make, and absolutely scrumptious.

You’ll need the following: chickpeas, olive oil, fresh garlic, and salt. Warm the oil in a medium sized frying pan on medium heat, then add 2 cloves of minced (or sliced, your preference) garlic. Keep an eye on the garlic, and stir frequently to keep it from burning or browning. After cooking the garlic for about 2 minutes, add chickpeas (if using canned, make sure to drain and rinse). Fry until your desired crispiness is achieved. I like to cover the pan and turn it up to medium/high heat so they get crunchy. Every few minutes I’ll give them a good stir, and re-cover. Add a pinch of salt, and serve. If I’m feeling daring (ha, I’m an olive oil and garlic girl), I’ll add herbs for extra flavor (like rosemary or basil).

These are perfect on their own as a light meal, as a salad topping, served with rice, etc. Last week I mixed them into a couscous and collard greed dish and Joe loved it!

What’s your favorite way to eat/cook chickpeas?

    i cannot wait to try this! i buy paint-cans of chickpeas and use them in hummus and 'as a garnish for salads' (as the label suggests) but i'm always struggling to use so many before they expire. i have a feeling we will love them fried! thank you Rebecca!

    have you ever thought about adding some variation in how you take the pictures of food? the bird eye view every. single. time. every. single. day. has gotten so boring.

    Thanks for asking, Liz! Right now, I only have an iPhone to take pics with, and am limited as to the angle, etc. But very soon I hope to purchase a dslr. Hope you'll like my photos then! But the overhead shot is a favorite of mine, so it won't ever go away completely. 🙂

    I think it's helpful to have a lot of pre-packaged items that you created in your moments of
    inspiration. In this way you can just sit down and write the details.
