Roasted Chickpeas is one of my new favorite little snacks. They are not only a great source of protein, but also help curve that craving for a salty snack.
WHAT YOU NEED…
1. 2 Cans of Chickpeas (I buy mine at Walmart)
2. Olive Oil
3. 8 x 8 size Pan (or something similar)
4. Cajun Spice
5. Garlic Salt
6. Paper Towels
WHAT YOU DO….
First, preheat the oven to 350°.
Next, place a double layer of paper towel on the counter.
Open the cans of chickpeas and drain the water.
Gently dump the chickpeas onto the paper towel.
Spread the chickpeas out evenly on the paper towel.
Place another paper towel over the chickpeas to soak up the remaining water. The chickpeas have to be as dry as possible so that they are crunchy once they are cooked.
Once dry, place the chickpeas in the pan.
Drizzle olive oil across the top of the chick peas, just enough that all the chick peas have oil.
Place in oven and cook for 20-25 minutes.
Once done, pull out of the oven and sprinkle cajun and garlic salt on the chickpeas immediately.
Note: If you prefer to use other spices on the chickpeas that is fine too! Chickpeas taste great on salads, as a side or even as a little snack!
Let cool and enjoy!
