Video: Two New Quick & Easy Recipes to Delight Your Guests + a Giveaway!

I love to entertain guests in the late fall and winter seasons. Everyone is indoors, gathered around the table or hovering in the kitchen instead of dispersed outdoors like in the summer. It’s a great time to catch up with loved ones about how their lives are going and re-connecting with them over great food. That’s another reason I don’t like to complicate food when guests are arriving- the simpler the better so we have more time together. Check out two quick and easy recipes in the video below that incorporate a new and delightful ingredient by Saffron Road.

Don’t forget to leave your idea in the comments section of this blog post (NOT on YouTube) for incorporating Saffron Road’s Crunchy Chickpeas into your own recipe. When you do, you’ll be automatically entered to win the apron I’m wearing in the video. Please read the official giveaway guidelines before commenting, as your comment indicates you have done so. Giveaway ends on Friday, Dec. 21, 11:59 pm.


The written recipes for both dishes will be posted at a later date. Be sure to subscribe to My Halal Kitchen so those recipes can come straight to your inbox!

  1. Hello sister , Love your idea about the Salad , and i think about the Saffron Road’s Crunchy Chickpeas we can always chop them and sprinkle them over any dish or Salad that needs some Crunch to it

  2. Salam alykum,
    I would put the falafal chickpea’s on a Zaatar Manaeesh, probably one of my favourite arabic “pzza’s”. My mouth is watering from the thought! Another recipe it would be great on is if you add falafal chickpea’s on soup, specifically lentils, since I know that my husband would love the crunch and it would add a nice texture to the puree.. The salad idea that you posted is an amazing idea! I can’t wait to try it!! yumm!

  3. Salaamu Alaikum!
    I normally like to make bean salad with canned chickpeas, but with these crunchy peas I think I’d add them to cooked cous-cous or quinoa for a crunchy kick. I also thought about adding the chickpeas to top a soup just like Kendra said. I have tried some of the Saffron Road entrees actually thanks to your recommendation, but I have tried the chickpeas and I think I’ll pick some up tomorrow in Shaa Allah at my local Whole Foods.

  4. I would make a quick snack mix with peanuts and raisins. That would be an easy snack to carry in my purse
