Instructions
  1. Make the Crispy Chickpeas - Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. On a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silpat, toss your dried chickpeas with olive oil and the salt. Spread into an even layer. Roast for 30 minutes, tossing the chickpeas every 10 minutes to ensure even roasting. When the chickpeas are done roasting (they will be lightly browned but not burnt), Remove from the oven and toss in a large bowl with the remaining chickpea seasonings. The oil from roasting the chickpeas should help the spices stick to the chickpeas. But if the spices aren't sticking well enough you can add a little bit more oil.
  2. While your chickpeas are roasting prep your other bowl ingredients. Cook your rice or quinoa according to package directions. When the quinoa or rice is done, toss with the lime juice, lime zest, and cilantro.
  3. If you're having peppers and onions, preheat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil of your choice, and saute the peppers and onions for 4-6 minutes until softened and lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  4. Assemble bowls to enjoy now or meal prep for later.
Recipe Notes

The key to crispy chickpeas is to dry them very well after rinsing. If you want to take the extra step, you can remove the skins from the chickpeas. It takes a few extra minutes but it REALLY makes them extra crispy.
