Directions / Preparation instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  2. Peel the onion then cut in half from top to bottom before slicing across thinly so you end up with half-moon shapes.
  3. Peel the garlic cloves too.
  4. Heat a frying pan over medium heat with a good glug of olive oil added.
  5. Add the onions to the hot pan after about one minute followed by a sprinkle of sea salt flakes and black pepper according whilst making sure that all parts have some seasoning on them at this stage.
    6.Stirring regularly; cook until they start turning translucent which should take around five minutes give or take depending on how thickly sliced they were originally – add in minced garlic now if you’d like as well!
    7.Now add the smoked paprika along with chopped parsley leaves stirring everything together lightly ensuring even coating throughout any spices used here; about thirty seconds worth should do nicely 🙂 .
    8.Drain cans full chickpeas then rinse under cold water before adding to the mixing bowl – give them a good stir around so that they’re coated nicely by seasoning and spices.
  6. Transfer the chickpeas mixture onto baking dish, add diced bell peppers.
  7. Pour over your tin of chopped tomatoes onto the dish then tuck in any remaining fresh herbs or parsley if you have some!
    11.Cover with foil and bake for forty-five minutes. Then remove the foil and put back into oven for another ten minutes.
