• 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely sliced (or minced)
  • 1/2 tablespoon rosemary (or 1 sprig of fresh if you have it)
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • small handful of almonds (whole or halved)
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 15.5oz can of chickpeas, drained
  • head of romaine lettuce
  • Parmesan Cheese

I love chickpeas and the one tricky thing about this recipe is that one can can pretty much serve 2 people – when I made this I was able to share between my wife and I so I will count this as a 2 serving recipe. The one comment my wife had was that it needed dressing, I am ok with the roasted garlic, rosemary, tomato, almonds and the parmesan cheese. Next time I will figure out a good dressing. If you try it with dressing let me know what worked for you. Enjoy!


  1. Heat a frying pan with olive oil.
  2. Add garlic, rosemary, almonds, and red pepper flakes. Stir fry for about 1-2 minutes, until garlic is starting to brown.
  3. Toss in the drained chickpeas and continue to stir fry until chickpeas are warm and golden.
  4. Place chopped romaine lettuce in a large bowl with cherry tomatoes. Take chickpeas and toss in with lettuce. Place in another bowl and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
