crunchy roasted chickpeas

This recipe is a perfect solution for those days where you just want to snack. When you’re feeling the urge to open a bag of chips, pretzels or crackers for that salty crunch give these Cajun Roasted Chickpeas a try. I’m willing to bet they’ll fit the bill and satisfy your craving without the extra junk that comes along with processed foods.

Ingredients:

1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained & rinsed
Cajun seasoning (or your seasoning of choice)
Sea Salt
Olive Oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and then pat dry with a paper towel. Discard any excess skins that fall off in the washing. Coat the chickpeas with a light coating of olive oil and spread out on a baking sheet. Allow the chickpeas to bake for approximately 40 minutes. You want them to get quite crunchy but not burnt so check them regularly towards the end. Once baked, sprinkle with Cajun seasoning and sea salt to suit your taste.

Enjoy!
