Rosemary Sea Salt Fried Chickpeas
"One day I fried up some chickpeas to use in place of croutons in a salad, and they were so good, most of them never made it to the salad. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that with just a little bit of seasoning they would make an awesome snack! So crispy and light and made with heart healthy olive oil, I wanted to really keep things simple. I added a little bit of rosemary for an aromatic boost, and my new favorite recipe was born! Healthy, delicious, and super easy to make, these fried chickpeas make a great snack or a fun appetizer that can be made entirely of ingredients you probably already have in your home. That's what I call a go-to recipe!"
