I love chickpeas in all forms. A neighborhood restaurant we frequent actually serves a hummus platter with falafel, it makes me laugh chickpeas with chickpeas but I love it! Adding chickpeas to salads has always been a favorite of mine and now you can add roasted chickpeas to the list! So simple and addicting. The recipe below is super simple. If you don't feel like a spicy snack, trade out the chipotle season for simple salt and pepper, or go Indian with a little garam masala.
Ingredients: 2 16 oz. cans Chickpeas (no salt added) Olive Oil 3/4 Tbsp Southwest Chipotle Seasoning by Mrs. Dash
Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Rinse chickpeas and lay on paper towels to dry on the counter. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, use more paper towels to pat the chickpeas dry. Remove any shells that may have come off. Place dried chickpeas on an unlined cookie sheet and lightly coat/spray with olive oil. Bake for 40 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. Let sit for another 20-30 minutes with the oven off to allow them to get a bit more crispy. In a small to medium bowl pour the seasoning, place the chickpeas on top and stir. Coating evenly. Snack away!
