Easy Marinated Chickpeas



What’s your fave thing to make with a can of chickpeas?


Everyone has a can of chickpeas in the cupboard — they’re an inexpensive, planet-friendly healthy choice and they’re grown right here in Canada.


Nutritionally speaking, they are filled with gut-friendly and heart healthy fibre, antioxidants (cell-protecting plant-based compounds), and vitamins and minerals, like zinc, that we need for good health.

 

If you’ve got a can sitting in your cupboard and not sure what to do with them, try this: marinated them.

 

Chickpeas are super delish with this tangy marinade. Add them to power bowls, lettuce wraps, salads, and spicy noodle dishes.


Ingredients

¼ cup canola oil

2 small cloves of garlic, minced

3 tbsp light soy sauce

2 tbsp unseasoned rice vinegar or cider vinegar

1 tbsp toasted sesame oil

Pinch of chili flakes

1 can (540mL/19oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed 

 

How to make:

 

In a small jar or bowl, whisk canola oil, garlic, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and chili flakes.

 

Add chickpeas to a glass container, pour marinade in and stir gently. Cover and refrigerate for at least a few hours, stirring at least once. Keeps for up to 3 days.
