An easy protein snack

1 tsp sesame seed oil
a sprinkle of sea salt
1 can of chickpeas

Toss in a wok or you can bake them in the oven

It only takes a couple of min in a wok, and they are soft, warm, and yummy. You can bake them in the oven if you want them more crispy and chewy. They will shrink in size when in the oven.

You can still see the steam rising.

My son loves chickpeas. I have 13 pictures of him inhaling them, and carrying them around the house. Here are just a couple.

The last one is him trying to stuff as many as he can in his hand before he decides to just carry the whole bowl around with him.

These are an easy snack to make, and keep in the fridge to just keep on hand. They can also be added into salads, soups, stir-fries...anything really.

The sesame oil is really key in making this so yummy.



  1. Man! I can't wait to get home and join in the fun!!!

  2. Kim, I will have to try the sesame seed oil. I have done them in the oven with garlic and olive oil to put in salads, and that was good.

  3. yummy.....hopefully will have time to make some tomorrow!! i luv the idea of using sesame oil
