Roasted Paprika Chickpeas and Cinnamon Carrots

Roasted Paprika Chickpeas and Cinnamon Carrots

Yo, VIP, let's KICK IT. 

All right stop. Collaborate and listen. 

Beezus is back with a brand new INVENTION. 

It doesn't involve vanilla, nor does it involve ice. But never should I ever have to explain myself for dropping a lil Vanilla Ice throwback into your day. In fact, you're welcome. 

This song popped onto my Spotify shuffle yesterday morning. I loled. Then vowed to bring it into the blog in SOME way. Just spreading smiles, people. 

Anyways, the new "invention" involves a chit chat about chickpeas and carrots. A lil shimmy shake of paprika, a lil shimmy shake of cinnamon and boom pow, we're groovin with another one-sheet pan recipe. I'm all about 'em lately! Why? They're so easy peasy, healthy, they're basically fool-proof (a must for beezus) AND they keep well in the fridge overnight for leftovers the next day. 

These are the ingredients you'll need (eyeball it, nothing needs to be precise): 

  • Carrots
  • Chickpeas (1 can)
  • Chicken Sausage 
  • Baby Greens 
  • Cinnamon 
  • Paprika 
  • Sea Salt 
  • Black Pepper
  • Coconut Aminos / Coconut Oil 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper
  3. Chop your carrots and place on the sheet pan
  4. Remove chickpeas from the can and blot dry with a paper towel before adding to the sheet pan as well
  5. Chop chicken sausage into bite-sized pieces and add to sheet pan
  6. Toss ingredients with coconut aminos (otherwise coconut oil will do) 
  7. Add a shimmy shake of paprika to the chickpeas and a shimmy shake of cinnamon to the carrots (feel free to interchange the two) and sea salt + black pepper to both 
  8. ROAST ... for about 35-40 minutes
  9. Serve over a bed of your fave baby greens ... and avocado :) duh.

If you cook this up, let me know what you think! I acknowledge that this is an uber simps 'recipe', and it could be jazzed up in 101 different ways. All you inventive foodies out there, please give me a ring :) 

But I love, LOVE roasting carrots with cinnamon and have recently jumped on a paprika kick. Thus, that explains my one-sheet pan "invention". Anyways... enjoy.

... If there was a problem, YO I'd solve it. 

I'm no professional cook, but I'll sure as heck revolve it!
