Quite often when deciding what to cook for dinner I look in the fridge and the store cupboard and then take to the internet to see if there are any suitable recipes I can use. This is exactly what I did the other day.
At one point I got side-tracked by a link to a recipe for spiced roasted chickpeas. The chickpeas are dusted with a mixture of spices and then roasted in a hot oven until crispy. The result is meant to be a tasty snack.
I looked at the comments on the recipe and most seemed very favourable. But right at the end was the forlorn comment:
They exploded in the oven!
This gave me a severe giggle fit. I’m not sure why.
