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.

Thanks for giving some suggestions on what spices to use with the soy nuts. Sounds good.

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?
