Ingredients- 1 cup chickpeas, 1 lemon, Olive oil for seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, more or less to taste, 1/2 Tablespoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- First, we need to preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking tray with foil
- Then we need to rinse the chickpeas in a utensil and let them dry well
- In a bowl, we now combine chickpeas, salt spices and season it with olive oil and then toss the chickpeas around to coat them properly.
4. Now we need to spread the chickpeas onto baking sheet in a layer and bake it for about forty minutes until the peas are nicely crispy and cooked.
- The Roasted chickpeas can now be served with chopped onions and a squeeze of lemon for the taste. It’s always better than potato chips you know!

- In a small saucepan, we need to bring the milk to a boil; and slowly, stir in the oats and let it cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring occasionally.
- Now, we need to stir in the banana and strawberry and follow it by the sugar, cinnamon powder and honey.
- To serve, we need to garnish it with the remaining fresh fruits and the raspberry syrup as required. Homemade Cheese Popcorn

Ingredients: 1 cup Popcorn Kernels, 2 Tablespoon Butter, Salt to taste, 3 Tablespoon Cheddar Cheese Powder, 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
- For the first step, we need to seal a cup of Popcorn in a brown paper bag and Microwave till kernels stop popping at the rate of at least one pop per second.

- Now for the Kale, we need to tear leaves into large pieces and remove and discard thick stems to speed up the cooking process.
- In a microwave tray, the leaves should be spread in a single layer, lined by a foil.
