Roasted Chickpeas

Here’s a super quick, 6-ingredient recipe for you. And, I’m guessing that the only ingredient you don’t already have in your pantry is 2 cans of chickpeas (a.k.a. garbanzo beans). These would be perfect to set out for guests (just like you would with peanuts or chips) but would also make a healthy, low fat snack for work or the road. Feel free to experiment with various seasonings: I stayed true to the original recipe, but I would also like to try these with cajun seasoning, or jalepeno powder, or even a salt/sugar combo.


Roasted Chickpeas

2 cans (15 oz) chickpeas
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp cumin
1 dash cayenne
1 dash black pepper
1 TBS olive oil

Preheat oven to 425. Rinse and drain chickpeas; dry well on paper towels. Place chickpeas on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and shake. Return to oven for another 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine all seasonings. Remove chickpeas from oven. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with seasonings. Shake pan to coat chickpeas well. Return to oven and bake another 10-15 minutes until chickpeas are crunchy and brown.
