Summery Smoked Paprika Chick Peas with Homemade Pumpkin, Spelt Bread!
Smoked paprika has quickly become my favourite spice! It can be used in so many ways but watch out, it can be very hot if you use too much!
To make these delicious Tapas-inspired chick peas, heat 1 Tbs of olive oil in a frying pan, add half a red bell pepper, diced and 1 large garlic clove, sliced. Heat through for a couple of minutes, then add 1 heaped Tbs of smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 Tbs of dried, mixed herbs and 1 can of drained and rinsed chick peas. Roughly chop up around 8 cherry tomatoes (or 2 regular ones) and add to the chick peas along with 1 tsp of tomato paste. Finally grate in some black pepper and another garlic clove.
Serve with salad, spelt bread and houmous! Deeeeelish :)
Find the spelt bread recipe in one of my previous posts; here, but instead of using a loaf tin, bake in a square roasting tray and crumble pumpkin seeds on top and throughout!
