Roasted Chickpeas

Have you ever needed a really tasty, crunchy, but healthy snack??  I came across roasted chickpeas online, and although I have no idea where I originally saw the recipe, here is how I made them:

Roasted Chickpeas:

1. Cook your chickpeas, drain them, and cool them.

2. Pat the chickpeas off so that they’re not slimy or wet.

3. Put the chickpeas on a baking sheet in a single layer.

4. Drizzle olive oil over them until they’re lightly coated.

5. Sprinkle sea salt (potentially garlic salt if you’d like!) and a dash of cayenne over them.

6. Roast them in the oven at 400F for 40 mins.

7. Allow them to cool for 10 mins. so they’ll be crunchy (or eat them right away if you don’t care!)

I REALLY like them!!  We’ll hopefully be enjoying some this week.  :)

    Mmm, sounds good! If you’re looking for ways to turn veggies into snacks, you should try baked kale chips…delicious. Super easy and they turn into a yummy, surprisingly chip-like snack.

    I don’t have any bulk chickpeas right now…. would canned ones work?

  7. [...] Having cooked beans on hand is one of the simplest ways to get protein into a meal.  I like to soak enough chickpeas or black beans over night so that I can fill a crock pot the next morning.  I put them in the crock pot with fresh water covering them, and turn it on high for 6-8 hours.  Then they’re all cooked!  Drain them, and bag them up in individual portions for your family size, and they’ll be quick to throw in a soup, make a curry, or eat as a snack.
