This meal does not disappoint. Healthy, Hearty, and Simple. Roasting Chickpeas changes the flavor completely, bringing out a more nutty flavor. I love all the different flavors and the hit of cayenne, but be careful, a little goes a long way! You could serve this with couscous or pita bread. Plus, my yogurt sauce it killer, easy, and good for you too. Enjoy!
