Leblebi Inspired Savoury Roasted Chickpeas

Leblebi Inspired Savoury Roasted Chickpeas

Oh hello, let me introduce you to my new favourite snack: Leblebi Inspired Savoury Roasted Chickpeas.

I’ve been on a bit of a chickpea kick lately, if you hadn’t noticed already. It only made sense that I roast some up for a grazing snack to have on hand. Lately, I haven’t been consuming my daily quota of potato chips, instead I have been eating these roasted chickpeas by the fistful. They have a popcorn-esque snackiness. I can munch on them with abandon since they have benefit of being low in saturated fat and being a healthy source of iron and folate.

Munchable Masala Peanuts

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ideas. With the season’s hustle and bustle, this recipe has the holidays written all over it, without too much effort. They are perfect for holiday gatherings. They are so quick to throw together and they taste great. They are spicy, salty and a little tangy, the perfect snack with any mocktail, beer, cocktail, or even chai.

Okay are you ready for this — Ooey Gooey Cheesy Butter Chicken Sauce Bread? It will kind of change your life. Probably your waistline too, but it’s the festive season, so it’s 100% worth it. BONUS: it is unbelievably drool-worthy, scrumptious, “scary good”.

I love a food mash up. The idea of throwing two good things together to make a new wonderful thing, always makes me smile. This does not disappoint.

Decadent Diwali-Inspired Chocolate Twirls

Decadent Diwali-Inspired Chocolate Twirls

No one does decadent desserts better than (sweeping generalization alert:) South Asians during festive holidays like Diwali. With the cornucopia of traditional goodies eaten, the festival of lights should really be called the festival of sweets. “Mithai” the name for South Asian sweets consists of items like “galab jamuns” “laddoos”, “barfis” and “halwas” and are a cross between confectionary treat, snack, and a dessert of sorts.

Yam Conspiracy – Savory Spiced Yams & Sweet Potatoes

Yam Conspiracy – Savory Spiced Yams & Sweet Potatoes

I love potatoes. I realize this is quite the declaration, but it is true. Versatile. Comforting. Supremely accommodating. They are perfect any time of the day. Some days, I try to sneak them into every meal. If this does not happen, rest assured I get my daily fill. For me, after hours of writing, the end of the day is always capped off by a craving and indulgence in potato chips. I go through flavour and brand rotations – Plain. Rippled. Salt & Vinegar until my tongue can no longer tolerate the acidity. Sometimes, Jalapeno because I am hooked on heat.
