I don’t know about you, but I loooove a little crunch in my salad. I often turn to toasted nuts for a quick healthy crunch, a little protein, and healthy fat. Here’s my newest crunchy combination:
In a toaster-safe tray, combine 1 cup garbanzo beans (chickpeas,) 1/4 cup pine nuts, and 1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds.) Sprinkle with sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a pinch of rosemary (or spice of choice.) Toast for about five minutes, until golden brown and crunchy. Let cool and use as a salad topper or a snack when you have a craving for something salty! This hits the spot and adds protein, fiber, and antioxidants!
