Why Is Everyone So In Love with Chickpeas?
Chickpeas are a great choice for a snack because they have many health benefits, including:
- Chickpeas are very high in fiber; as a result, they are an excellent snack for people with diabetes, or borderline diabetes, as the doctors show that high fiber reduces blood glucose levels.
- Chickpeas are great for bone health because they contain iron, phosphate, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin K. All of these vitamins and minerals, are all shown to improve bone strength and structure.
- Vitamin K also helps your body absorb calcium, which is great if you have osteoporosis.
- Chickpeas are low-sodium, which is great for keeping your blood pressure low.
- They show high fiber to help cholesterol
- Chickpeas contain the mineral selenium which helps reduce cancer risks.
Tips on Getting The Best Roasted Chickpeas in the Air Fryer:
- Dry the chickpeas: I always do this in two steps, the first being to fully drain the chickpeas. Then I let them layout for about 20 to 30 minutes on a kitchen towel on the counter. I find that completely dried chickpeas give you the best crunchy flavor.
- Use Enough Olive Oil: If you are not fully coating your chickpeas they will never get fully crispy. Use enough oil to fully coat them, I keep on adding olive oil until I feel they all have a coat of olive oil.
- Season After: I always add a couple of teaspoons of seasonings after they are pulled from the air fryer.
