Hasselback potatoes and chilli chickpeas (GF)

Once again, I wasn’t really going to be posting this recipe on the blog as it is so ridiculously easy however many individuals have enquired for it anyway. So here it is… although I feel like I should change my blog name to include the words “lentil obsession” in the domain.
