Roasted chickpeas are super easy to make, and make a great appetizer, side dish, or perfect healthy snack. Chickpeas are also known as garbanzo beans and are grown all around the world. High in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, you can’t go wrong including them in your diet on a regular basis.
Easy Roasted Chickpeas
Rinse a can of chickpeas in a colander, then pour them onto a rimmed baking sheet lined with a paper towel and shake the pan lightly to dry the chickpeas off.
Gently pull the paper towel out from under the chickpeas and pour a tablespoon or so of olive oil over them. Move the pan from side to side again so they’re coated in the oil. Take this opportunity to sprinkle herbs and spices of your choice. The nutritional, healing, and flavor possibilities are endless!
Bake at 450 degrees for a half-hour to 40 minutes, sliding the pan around during cooking once or twice. They’re done when they are slightly puckered and blistered.
* I did have leftovers but they did not keep well so I would suggest making just enough for one setting.
