I've never really liked chickpeas. Small floury balls with little taste. But I found something! This somewhat healthier lifestyle simply requires some adjustments and chickpeas are part of that. How do you get them tasty on your plate or in a bowl? Yes, by baking them. Then they transform into very tasty crispy balls. And you can season and flavor it in many ways. Simply eat as a snack, but can also be used as a topping with a salad. The possibilities are endless. How do we do that? Right yes with the airfryer and not in the regular oven (although that is possible). I give you a basic recipe crispy chickpeas here! Roasted chickpea roasting recipe recipes

The chickpea is a legume that has been cultivated and eaten for thousands of years. This pea has different names, for example it is also called chickpea, chickpea, or garbanzo. Originally from the Middle East, it is now consumed all over the world. The nutritional values ​​are high with these little peas. For example, per 100 grams it contains 20 grams of protein, 15 grams of dietary fiber and only 5 grams of fat. This makes it an ideal meat substitute.

You can use chickpeas to make hummus, enrich salads or fry falafel. There is an old Turkish fairy tale that tells the story of a little boy the size of a chickpea. He has all kinds of adventures with his friends and learns important life lessons.

    Unfortunately they burn on me. It's cooked chickpeas from a jar and I have a small air fryer, would that be the problem?
