I love chickpeas in any form, and a few weeks ago I discovered that they can be roasted. You can season these any way you like and they will be delicious (and good for you)! Come on try it. How could you not love something called a “chickpea”?
1 can of chickpeas aka garbanzo beans
fresh ground black pepper
any other seasonings you want
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. Drain, rinse, and blot the chickpeas dry. Grease a baking pan and dump the chickpeas in. Season to taste, and give the pan a good shake to make sure all the chickpeas have been spiced. Bake for 30–40 minutes shaking the pan every 10 minutes or so. Watch very closely at the end to make sure you don’t burn them. They will shrink a bit and get darker when they are done. Feel free to taste test them a few times until they are nice and crunchy all the way through.
