Lemon Roasted Chickpeas

In our final week of Happy Healthy And Green, we will be sharing healthy, plant-based snacks. We begin with an easy, versatile recipe that provides a delicious snack everyone can enjoy. Roasted and tossed with lemon and sea salt, these chickpeas provide a healthy alternative to chips while satisfying that craving for crunchy salt and giving your body a boost of fiber and protein (18 g in 1/2 cup)! Enjoy these alone or use to top salads such as our Ultimate Vegan Caesar Salad.Β
