Baked WheatBran Coated Veggie-Bean Crunchies

Print  Friendly and PDF
Rather than going with the usual bread-crumbs as a coating,  I wanted to use wheat bran as a coating for this dish and see how it fares. I have to say, it fared well. Crunchy on the outside and smooth on the inside it was an instant hit. Since it was an experiment,I had made only a small batch of this yummy crunchies. The plate got emptied in no time. Later I wished I had made more. This is one dish that will make you wish for more.Always! Do try it sometime.
  • Garbanzo Beans(Chickpea) - 1/2 cup, cooked and smashed
  • Multi-colored mini peppers - 5-6, diced

  • Cracked pepper - 1 tsp or more
  • Salt for taste
  • Wheat Bran - 1 cup, for coating and mixing
  • Olive oil - 1 tbsp
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a greased cookie sheet, arrange the diced peppers and bake for 10 minutes.
  • In a shallow pan, add the wheat bran and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the cooked chickpea, sweetpea and roughly smash.
