In general, I object to the concept of Cajun seasoning. I just have a hard time getting on board with a technique that was invented to disguise the fact that you are serving rotten meat. I like the taste of the seasoning itself, though so I was glad to find this recipe. We’ve made it several times now – the first time with cumin and then with the Cajun seasoning. It’s fast, cheap, tasty,  unusual and it comes from a can. If you are tempted to make this  – and you should make it –  I recommend hurrying up about it before the Feds come for your olive oil.

Pan Fried Cajun Chickpeas

2-3 tsp flour
2-3 tsp Cajun seasoning
2-3 TB olive oil
sea salt, to taste

Rinse and dry chickpeas on paper towel. Be sure to dry completely.

Heat oil in a non stick skillet over medium high heat. Good luck with that on your stupid gas stove. Combine flour and seasoning in a small bowl. Roll chickpeas in seasoned flour until lightly dusted. Add chickpeas to skillet, in batches, cooking for a few minutes before gently tossing them around in pan.

Cook chickpeas until they look crisp and lightly browned. Remove from pan and serve warm.

  1. Fried and salted chickpeas. Hmm.
    Considering my BMI, I don’t think the gumment will allow me to eat something like that. Do you have a recipe for boiled dandelion greens? That will probably be allowed.
