Crispy Honey Wasabi Chickpeas
  • 1 – 15.5 oz. can (about 1 1/2 cups) rinsed and drained Chickpeas
  • 1 ½ tablespoons C&H® Honey Granules
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon horseradish powder

  • Canola oil (for frying)

Dry chickpeas thoroughly by either the overnight or quick dry method before frying

Blend all remaining ingredients, except prepared horseradish and oil, together well in mixing bowl and hold aside

Heat oil in small frying pan to ½ inch depth until hot. Fry chickpeas in a single layer and in batches, if needed, 4-5 minutes, until golden brown and crunchy, turning chickpeas often during the cooking time.

Toss chickpeas in honey wasabi seasoning until thoroughly coated then add horseradish and toss again
