Curried Roasted Chickpeas

Laura from The Spiced Life food blog posted this recipe recently and I felt it really deserved to be shared to our readers here.

This is a delicious, healthy snack that is super easy to make at home. All you need  is a few cans of cooked chickpeas and a selection of spices.

Of course if you prefer, you can cook your own chickpeas – just soak them overnight, drain and bring to a boil then simmer until tender (about an hour). Drain once they are cooked and let them cool before you roast them off.

Boiled chickpeas can also be frozen for up to a month if you want to have a supply on hand for a snack.

Sample our Gluten Free Range

Increasing numbers of kiwis are finding they need to turn to a gluten-free diet for themselves or their families.

Often the challenge for people needing to go gluten-free is the relatively small range of options, particularly if they are also looking for food that is healthy and possible even vegetarian.

A number of products in the MTR Ready to Eat range sold through supermarkets around New Zealand are gluten-free, including the popular Dal Makhani, Dal Fry (with yellow lentils) and Palak Paneer.

We have made it easy for you to find the gluten free products on our site, by adding all of them to a gluten free category.

Some New World supermarkets even have the MTR gluten free products sitting in their Gluten Free section, right next to the International Foods, making them even easier to find than usual.

Keeping some packs in your pantry means that you always have a very affordable, convenient and quick gluten free option to call on when required.
