Roasted Spiced Chickpea Snacks
The recipe was adapted from Eating Well Magazines's Spiced Chickpea “Nuts”. I added a bit of Cayenne pepper to give it some kick, but I will tone it down for another variation that I will try later this fall. These are really great and I love that they really have a snack feel - with some always needed protein. I am going to male some again soon. This is definitely a keeper and a fun snack for the next time we have people over for an event or a game. I think you can even add them to salads for a bit of added crunch!
For the record - Chickpeas and Garbanzo Beans are the same thing. Well, they are the same for the sake of this recipe!
Ingredients (Serves 4):
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
1 tbsp Olive oil
2 tsp Cumin, ground
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper, ground
1/4 tsp Allspice, ground
1/4 tsp Black pepper, ground
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
2. Rinse and dry chickpeas dry.
3. Toss chickpeas in a bowl with oil, cumin, cayenne pepper, allspice, black pepper and kosher salt.
4. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for around 25 minutes, stirring once or twice.
5. Let cool on the baking sheet for 15 minutes.
