    Dear Cheryl ,

    Earlier this month we attended The Art of Catering Food Conference in Salt Lake City. It was a great learning experience! Our Head Chef was able to get some hands-on time with amazing chefs from around the country, we toured the new facility of the award winning top caterer in Salt Lake City – Culinary Crafts, added some delicious new recipes to our repertoire and ended the week at the Boots & Buckles Industry Party hosted by Culinary Crafts! Take a peek at our Head Chef, Shayne at the Hoe Down – Yee Haw!

    To our loyal customers it is an honor to be called “your caterer” and to our new clients – we are here to serve and look forward to working with you! A quick reminder to give us a call soon to book your Holiday Party while we still have some open dates.

    Green Apple Catering Recipe of the Month August 2015

    Savory Oven-Roasted Chickpeas

    Total Time: 45 minutes / Yield: 4 to 6 servings

    Crunchy and salty are the two things that make a perfect bar snack. These baked chickpeas are not only tasty but also a healthy snack full of protein. Just toss them with a little olive oil and some spices, then roast in the oven until crunchy. They’ll stay crispy for a few days stored in a resealable bag at room temperature.

    • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, thoroughly drained and rinsed (about 3 cups)
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon thyme (chopped)
    • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
    • 1 teaspoon smoked sea salt (or to taste)
    • Fresh lemon zest to taste


    • Heat the oven to 400°F and arrange a rack in the middle.
    • Place the chickpeas in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, sweet paprika and smoked sea salt until evenly coated. Spread the chickpeas in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until crisp, about 30 to 40 minutes.
    • Remove from the oven and toss with the lemon thyme and lemon zest.
