Simply A (RD) Fact: Chickpeas are a great source of plant-based protein and soluble fiber!
For the Spicy Chickpeas:
  • 1-15oz can chickpeas, drained, rinsed, and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
For the Hummus:
  • 1-15oz can of white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped finely – more or less depending on your taste
  • 1½ tablespoons of white vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons of buffalo sauce - like Frank's (no hot sauce, please!)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of good olive oil
For the Spicy Chickpeas:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In large bowl, combine vinegar, salt, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the chickpeas to the spice mixture and toss to combine. Pour the chickpeas onto the baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes until crisp. Set aside as you make the hummus.
For the Hummus:
  1. Add rinsed, drained white beans, garlic, vinegar, salt, pepper, and buffalo sauce into the bowl of a food processor or powerful blender.
  2. Puree – add olive oil until you reach the consistency you desire.
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning – add salt, pepper, and extra hot sauce.
To Plate:
  1. Pour hummus into a wide bowl. Using a spoon, make a well in the middle of the hummus. Drizzle in some olive oil. Top the olive oil with some of the spicy chickpeas. Serve with crackers and celery sticks!
