I couldn’t keep this from you any longer. I originally found this recipe for spiced chickpeas with whipped feta on Instagram and decided to try it on a weekday while working from home, just on a whim since I was bored with my usual rotation.
And boy, was I surprised by the party in my mouth! It’s the perfect kind of easy weeknight recipe that feels like a treat, and I might be a bit obsessed.
I’ve mixed this up, adding roasted veggies to up the “healty” quotient, and have kept as leftovers to take to the office for lunch (chickpeas as leftovers are never as great as fresh, but still do the job).
That combo of spices really packs a punch, and the fiery spice pairs perfectly with the cool, tangy whipped feta.
I have been eating a LOT of chickpeas lately, and have definitely found that quality matters…certainly in health (e.g. organic), but also very much when it comes to the texture. I order these ones in bulk, as they store well and really hold their shape and flavor when cooking.
