Roasted Curry Chickpeas

Curry Roasted Chickpeas

I was on a big healthy snack kick last week, and had to add these Roasted Curry Chickpeas to the list!  I gave you a lot of sweet ones last week, so here’s a savory snack that is super healthy and easy to make!  Isn’t the yellow from the turmeric in the curry beautiful?  I actually added extra turmeric, because I wanted that yellow to really pop.

Turmeric adds more than just beauty to your foods.  I’ve talked about it before, but let me remind you of some of its health benefits.  It helps reduce inflammation and can relieve depression and anxiety.  Inflammation is linked to all sorts of diseases and other issues, including asthma, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, sinusitis, stroke, atherosclerosis (which causes heart attacks), and pretty much anything else that may be bugging you.  Inflammation is not a bad thing, in and of itself, because it is your body’s response to ailment.  The problem is that many of us experience an unhealthy inflammatory response, and the very thing that is supposed to heal us makes us sicker.  Curcumin, a magic ingredient in turmeric, helps your body to have a healthy inflammatory response.  If you want to know more about inflammation and how it wreaks havoc, check out this article.  By the way, one of the reasons gluten can cause such a diverse array of symptoms is because it causes many people to become inflamed in their gut.

Curcumin’s magic doesn’t end with the inflammation help!  It also has been shown to increase serotonin and dopamine levels.  It seems to affect patients with anxiety and depression similarly to fluoxetine (the drug in Prozac), but without the side effects.  Want to know more about this?  Check out this article.  Please do not stop taking prescription medicines without discussing it with your doctor, but it may be worth the conversation!  If you want to supplement your diet with extra curcumin, I’ve found that New Chapter supplements are very effective, and my nutritionists recommend them.  Here’s a link for turmeric. The New Chapter brand is worth the extra money!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and grease an 8x13 baking dish with coconut oil. Rinse and drain the chickpeas.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients, except the coconut oil spray, in a large bowl and stir well. Feel free to just eyeball the amounts!
  3. Pour the mixture into your baking dish. Spray it liberally with coconut oil, then place it in the oven.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring halfway through. It's a good idea to spray it again with coconut oil after stirring. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a while before serving. Store it in the refrigerator. Serve cool, room temperature, or warm. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I've given you a link for coconut oil spray, in case you can't find it, but it's cheaper in the grocery stores.  Trader Joe's has an especially good price on it.  If you are allergic to soy, make sure to check the ingredients, because sometimes they use soy lecithin in the spray.  You can always just use normal coconut oil!
