Chickpeas or “garbanzos” as they are known in Spain are a regular ingredient in many Spanish recipes, usually served with lamb, pork or as a side dish. One alternative way of cooking chickpeas is to roast them in the oven, you can make a large batch for the guests and serve them up in small tapas bowls alongside or as a replacement to peanuts and other snack food. Tremendously healthy and full of flavour chickpeas make ideal and unusual tapas at any time.
