Welcome to my blog where I document my adventures in food and travel. Hope you have a nice stay!

Spiced Chickpeas and Pulled Pork

Spiced Chickpeas and Pulled Pork

I like chickpeas but I never know what to do with them when I have a can in my kitchen. I always get a can with the intention to make hummus...and, of course, THAT never happens. This time around, I had a bunch of pulled pork left over from my Christmas dinner that I had vacuum-sealed and threw in the freezer.

Pork + chickpeas? Donezo.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1 tbsp cayenne
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1.5 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • Splash of olive oil (enough to coat the chickpeas for roasting)
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, throw in all your ingredients and then toss. Feel free to add more cayenne or chili powder if you like a little more spice!
  3. Roast on parchment paper and pan for maybe 10 minutes before tossing with a spoon or spatula and putting the pan back in the oven. 
  4. The chickpeas are done when they've browned and are slightly crispy. Be careful to not leave them in the oven for too long or they'll get dry and gross!

I ate my chickpeas with some baby spinach and my pulled pork, but you could eat them as just a snack!
