Spicy Roasted Chickpea Snack

  • 1 15 oz cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 TB olive oil
  • 1 TB curry powder or chili powder, or a mix of both
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Warm, spicy chickpeas you can eat right out of a bowl?  Yes please!  Make yourself this protein-rich snack and feel the satisfaction settle in.

Preheat the oven to 400°F.  Toss the chickpeas with the olive oil and spices of choice in a bowl.  Season with salt and pepper.  Spread in an single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp.  Shake pan occasionally during roasting time and watch carefully near the end of cooking so as not to burn.
