favor-“ette”: roasted chickpeas

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of chickpeas – whether in a lunchtime salad or my-current-favorite-snack hummus, you’ll always find at least a few cans hanging out in my kitchen cupboard.

But here’s my most favorite way to eat chickpeas: roasted.

Have you ever had roasted chickpeas? They’re delicious, and a perfect nibble with drinks.

Better? As long as you you keep some cans in YOUR cupboard, you will likely have every other ingredient you need to make them.

Better still? They adapt beautifully to almost any flavor profile you choose – simply switch out the spices.

a 15-19 oz. can of chickpeas, rinsed, drained and patted dry*

Pre-heat oven to 450.

Gently toss all ingredients in a large bowl till well combined. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper if you like). Bake for 10-12 minutes, or till browned and crisp. Let cool and serve within a day.
