Thanks everyone for the great suggestions! I'll be doing some cooking this weekend!

I also like to use the little snack bags for work - I have no idea what 1 oz is unless I weigh it out and portion control is one of my biggest challenges in weight loss.

That's true, Joan, but it's also true about peanuts with way fewer calories. I parcel mine out in 1 serving sizes and take a little baggy to work, so I have to quit at 1 serving.

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.

Joan-
This recipe is as easy as boiling water! And the ingredient list is the shortest list I've ever seen! I'm going to try making this.

Thanks!

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?
