Roasted Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

I roasted chickpeas Sunday. They are good! I sprinkled a little cayenne pepper on them. I probably didn't need as much salt as I used. One person commented that they roasted them without olive oil. I'll try that next time.

Here is one of the recipes from SparkRecipes. I used a different one but it's about the same except in this recipe they use chili powder and the recipe I followed used cayenne.

It's always interesting to read comments on the SparkRecipes because you can learn about other spices people used or other ideas they have about the recipe when they tried it.

15.5 oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
1 T. olive oil
1 T. chili powder (or to taste)
1 T. garlic powder (or to taste)
salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450F. Place all ingredients in a single layer on a baking pan. Bake for 25 minutes ~ turn oven off, but leave pan in oven until there is no longer any heat.

You can experiment with different seasonings to taste. Great for a snack or a quick pick-me-up!

    One of my favorite snacks. I generally roast them plain, then toss with the tiniest bit of lemon juice and Tabasco.
