I’ve been seeing a lot of recipes for baked chickpeas. Interesting. A treat. Crunchy & healthy. Hmmm. I’ve got to try it! I made 1/2 batch to see if I liked it. I DID! The crunch is somewhat addictive, if you don’t pay attention you could easily eat an entire can of chickpeas. Probably not the best idea, 😳
I found this recipe on Chowhound, click HERE for the link so that you can print, read reviews, etc. This recipe received 5 stars with 59 reviews (as I write this) . So you know this one is a keeper!
OVEN ROASTED CHICKPEAS via Chowhound!
2-15oz. cans of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) – thoroughly drained and rinsed.
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil (or less)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (I used Pink Himalayan)
Heat over to 400°F and use the middle rack in your oven
Place the spices and olive oil in a large bowl.
Add the chickpeas and toss to coat.
Spread the chickpeas in an even layer on a cookie sheet (with sides so they don’t roll off)
Bake until crisp 30-40 minutes, moving them around on occasion. (I didn’t do that and some of mine were slightly crispy, they were still good). My oven took 30 minutes.
Let me know what you think?? What spices have you used for this? I would love to know!
Catch you back here tomorrow!
