Snack of the Week: Roasted Chickpeas

Yummy yummy yummy…chickpeas 2For this quick and healthy snack you’ll need a can of chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), olive oil and assorted spices.  I prefer to do a blend of garlic powder, kosher salt, pepper, and a touch of paprika.  After rinsing the chickpeas (and drying them well!) place them on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil and spices.  Then place into a 400 degree oven and roast for 20 minutes. About halfway through you’ll want to nudge the chickpeas around a little to make sure they are evenly cooked. Every oven cooks differently so you might want to taste test one after 15 minutes…no one wants a burnt pea!
