The Best Healthy Chickpea Croutons (Gluten-Free)

The Best Healthy Chickpea Croutons (Gluten-Free)
We are organising all the vegetarian recipes we had published to make it a 100% vegan blog. When it was the Caesar salad turn, we decided that instead of using croutons or toast, we could use the best healthy chickpea croutons (gluten-free).

The original idea was not ours; we saw some American blogs that used them to make a gluten-free and more nutritious salad.

We had already published a recipe for roasted chickpeas; it is a delicious, light snack and does not contain more than chickpeas, lemon juice and spices. This time we have changed the herbs to make them have a more neutral flavour, but you can use whatever you want.

The best healthy chickpea croutons (gluten-free) can be used to replace croutons in soups, creams or in any recipe that uses them, or simply as a healthy snack to take between meals or to watch a movie like popcorn if you are on a diet, you can put a Tupper in your smuggling bag when you go to the film.

To make this recipe, you only need five ingredients: chickpeas, lemon (or lime) juice, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. If you cannot take salt, you can eliminate it without problems, add more spices so that your chickpeas have more flavour.

Spices to Make The Best Healthy Chickpea Croutons (Gluten-Free)
Ideally, put the chickpeas in a bowl and the lemon juice and spices, stir with your hands and then pour them on the baking sheet. You can also mix it on the fly on the cookie sheet, although the base may brown more than necessary, so be careful.

The baking time may vary depending on your oven; although I usually have them for about 20 minutes, I stir them and leave them for another 10 or 15 minutes. When you take them out of the oven, they will be softer, and when they cool down, they will harden and be crisper.
