Snack Attack: Roasted Chickpeas

Whether you need a protein-packed salad topper or you’re craving a very savory afternoon snack, this recipe aims to please.

The fact that it’s incredibly convenient doesn’t hurt.

Ingredients

1/2 cup low-sodium chickpeas (or garbanzo beans)

light cooking spray

favorite seasonings (I went with a garlic-pepper seasoning, but you could try a spicy creole one? A curried version? Or a Tex-Mex one featuring a heaping dash of my Preservative-Free Taco Seasoning).

Directions

-Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a broil-safe pan. Set aside.

-If necessary, rinse beans. Spray lightly and toss in seasonings of your choice.

-Spread evenly over prepared pan and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove and toss them up a bit so they roast on each side. Return to oven for another 4-5 minutes or so. Then if you like, turn on broilers and let cook another 2-3 minutes.

They should come out nice and crispy. If not, leave ’em in a bit longer.
