Crunchy chickpeas & black beans:
1 x 400g tin chickpeas
1 x 400g tin black beans
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground smoked paprika
Preheat your oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper before you get started on your beans. Drain both tins and let them sit on a tea towel whilst you get the spices together.
Mix the spices with the coconut oil and then coat your beans in them. Often I'll use my hands so they're really well covered.
Pop the beans flat on the baking tray and into the oven to cook for 30-40 minutes, giving them a toss half way through.
Below are a few tips you can use to make an impressive feasting plate for New Year's Eve:
1) Use different size bowls – this will help to add height and texture to your plate
2) Have one centre piece – for this one, it's the guacamole with a little paprika on top
3) Add all different types of food – cooked corn, fresh peas people need to pod, with crackers for the dip, it's all different and will keep everyone coming back for more.
