Chickpea or kacang kuda is great for you. It’s a good source of protein, carbohydrate and fibre, and choline in this legume helps to you sleep better, and aids in reducing chronic inflammation. While you can cook this legume into savoury curries, stew and even turn them into delicious dips, you can have it the crunchy way too. Here’s a recipe that can be a keeper if you also love cinnamon.

What you need: One can of chickpeas, one tablespoon of olive oil, one tablespoon of honey and, of course, a healthy sprinkling of cinnamon.
What you do: Drain and rinse the chickpeas, then dry them on a paper towel. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees celcius and top a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the chickpeas on the baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 45 minutes, or until crispy. While they’re still warm, toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, honey and cinnamon to taste. Spread back onto the baking sheet and cook for another 10 minutes or so until caramelized.
The result? A crispy, golden bowl of goodness that you don’t have to feel bad about eating in its entirety. Magic.
