Roasted Chickpeas

Recipe: Roasted Chickpeas

These make a very addictive snack. Much better than popcorn when watching a movie.

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Rinse chickpeas well, and dry using a paper towel. Discard any loose skins.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Add the dry chickpeas and stir to coat.
  4. Spread mixture on a baking sheet (line with parchment paper for easy cleanup).
  5. Cook for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally. They are done when the are brown and crunchy.
  6. Allow to cool and enjoy.

Variations

While the above seasoning is my favorite, any seasoning will work well.  Some other options are:

  • Lemon-pepper: salt, pepper, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard
  • Smoky Spiced: adobo sauce, ground cumin, and salt
