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!
