Chickpeas Quick Snack with Turmeric Red Onion and Red Chilli Flakes

"I’m sure this happens to you too sometimes, coming back home hungry like a wolfie not knowing what to tuck in?! Well, it certainly happens to me especially around 4 pm when I need to beat that sugar craving and truthfully this chickpeas quick snack is such a good saviour for me helping me dig deep in the sugar jar smashing a good few chocs or kit-kat bars. A great way to snack on this healthy chickpeas, turmeric, red onion and chilly flakes, moreish and pretty addictive. So truly yummy!"

NotesInstead of the chilli flakes you can add cayenne pepper if you wish spiciness to be more even. I prefer a little chilli flake or a seed - it’s nice to find that little chilli surprise, if you like that. If spicy isn’t your thing then add anything you might like such as paprika, zataar, harissa or any spices or herbs you may wish and like.


Preparation Time5 min

Cooking Time10 min


  • 400 g cooked chickpeas
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1/4 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch of turmeric
  • 1 pinch Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp mixed seeds cumin, fenugreek and mustard
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 lemon just the juice


  1. Chop the onion and place in a pan with the olive oil over medium fire. Add the seeds, salt and cook for 5 min or so until the onions are nice and soft.

  2. Add the chickpeas and the turmeric and continue cooking for another 3-4 mins stirring or tossing regularly.

  3. Add the chilli flakes and toss for a further minute.

  4. Squeeze a dash of lemon and serve. Ta da!!
