Easy, healthy chickpeas get a kick from hot sauce and lots of garlic. You get a kick from cooking them.  Watch our badly edited recipe video because no how-to video is worse than a how-to video, sometimes. 


  • 2 cans (15 oz.) chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 5 garlic cloves, sliced thin
  • peel of 1 lemon ( use a vegetable peeler)
  • 1/2 cup, olive oil
  • manchego or other firm sheep's milk cheese
  • chili flakes
  • Yellowbird Hot Sauce


  1. Crisp garlic in olive oil over med-high heat until golden brown, add lemon peel and chili flakes, cook one minute more. 
  2. Add chickpeas and hot sauce then turn down the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Toss in parsley, mix.  Plate and top with grated manchego. 

    Pro Tip: It seems like a lot of olive oil but it becomes an aromatic sauce you can spoon over anything you serve with the chickpeas, liquid gold.
