Roasted Garbanzo Beans Chickpeas Recipe

Meet Your New Favorite Snack: Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

At Nopalito, a Mexican eatery in my neighborhood, every meal starts off with a complimentary bowl of spicy fried chickpeas. This snack is full of heat and crunch, reminiscent of spicy wasabi peas or roasted hominy. My addiction to them led me to make a healthier version at home. Like kale chips, roasted chickpeas are a great way to satisfy a chip craving, minus all that fat, and you get all the nutritional benefits of chickpeas — namely, fiber and protein.

Ingredients

  1. 1 15-ounce can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil

  4. 2 teaspoons of spice mixture (a curry, Morrocan, or Mexican spice mixture works well)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Drain and rinse chickpeas in a colander. Pat dry.
  3. Toss chickpeas in a medium-sized bowl with olive oil, sea salt, and spices.
  4. Arrange chickpeas on a baking sheet in a single layer.
