Healthy Cooking

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
To all the health buffs and cooks out there who are thinking of cooking up a healthier lifestyle, then it's Time To Change Your Oil. As a health buff myself, I've been using Pompian olive oil in my cooking. I never knew that grapeseed oil has similar health benefits to olive oil, and that it is even more versatile for cooking due to its light taste and high smoke point. Dear readers, you need to try this oil in your cooking and I'm pretty sure you would really love this in your foods. Here's one recipe using grapeseed oil.
Smoky Fried Chickpeas

Makes 4 servings

INGREDIENTS
1 cup Pompeian Grapeseed Oil
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
3/4 tsp. salt
2 large cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp. grated lemon zest
2 tsp. smoked paprika
Preparation
1. Dry chickpeas thoroughly with paper towels.

2. Using a candy thermometer, heat oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high until it reaches 355 degrees. Add chickpeas, zest and thyme to pan in batches to avoid overcrowding.

3. Fry chickpeas for about 5 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with paprika and salt. Serve immediately.
