My husband really likes them with curry powder the best. I think the dill sounds yummy, I might have to try that. I use dried spices and add them before I put them in the oven, but I think that especially with the more delicate herbs, it might be a good idea to wait until near the end.
These are incredibly easy to make, and much less expensive than buying them! Fair warning, though: you have to keep an eye on them to prevent scorching.
I found this recipe in the newspaper and have made it several times
Rinse and drain a medium size can of chickpeas, then toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and bake until crisp (about 1 hour) at 350 degrees. (Shake pan several times for even browning.
That's it. I haven't added any seasoning and find them fine just as is. I'm sure you could add whatever you like - maybe dill or nutritional yeast. But I think I might wait to the last 10 minutes or so to add the seasoning.

I've made them at home with both soybeans and garbanzo beans. Basically, I take cooked beans and mix them with a small amount of olive oil (like 1 teaspoon for 2 cups of beans) and then whatever spices I want. Then I bake them (I think at 400 degrees, if I remember correctly), giving them a stir every 10 minutes, until they get brown. Once they're cool, they're nice and crunchy.
I like to use curry powder or chili powder on mine. I bet you could also use Mrs. Dash or something like that for flavor. It's really just a question of what spices you enjoy.
I bought some soy nuts from the bulk food section at the supermarket for snacks. I've had them before but they were commercially prepared and flavored. These are quite bland - I got the roasted, unsalted kind because I'm watching my sodium. They're a great source of protein, 1 oz has 11.2g. Also 2.3g fiber and 6.1g fat.
Does anyone have any recipes or ideas for how to spice them up a bit?
