Hiya friends. This is going to be a quick post because I'm a bit under the weather. Just last week I was happily remarking to my parents that I hadn't gotten sick all school year. Karma's a you-know-what.
This week I found myself in a food rut and wanted to make something different for dinner. Earlier in the week I had cooked up some chickpeas (I used dried) and I started thinking up different ways I could use them. These chickpea poppers are like healthier chicken nuggets. They're fun to eat and nutritious to boot. These were my dinner along with some curried cauliflower. They'd be great as a party appetizer, too, though!
1 cup chickpeas
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 375
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor. Process until all of the ingredients are mixed together. Make sure to not completely macerate the chickpeas--you want some texture.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce.
Before I sign off, I want to do a quick little shout-out for my Aunt's blog. She's doing a 40-day fast for Lent and is blogging about it over at Writing on Faith. The posts are really interesting and she, of course, is awesome. Make sure to stop by!
