Chickpeas–garbanzo beans–call them what you will, taste lovely in a salad or even on their own. But to roast them with spices is divine. Try this recipe that only takes moments to prepare, and you’ll see what I mean. I suggest sharing them with your family or a friend, otherwise, you’re likely to eat the whole batch.
ROASTED FLAVORED CHICKPEAS
3 cups cooked chickpeas (either canned or soaked and cooked from dry chickpeas)
3 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp mixed spices of your choice (paprika, garlic, onion, zahatar, barbecue mix or some combination)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix spices in a bowl with olive oil. Add drained chickpeas and stir until thoroughly combined. Spread out on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Enjoy warm. You can also add them to a salad.
Ready to put in the oven…and then gone in 5 minutes
