Roasted Chickpeas

This is a great crunchy, salty, satisfying low-cal, high protein and fiber snack.

Pre-heat oven to 350

Drain and rinse 1, 15 oz can of chickpeas

1 Tbsp EVOO

2 tsp of sea salt or I subbed Pico Limon (heat + lime + salt)
<Also trialing 1 Tbsp EVOO + 1 Tbsp tamari>

Toss and place on a jelly roll sheet. Place on middle rack of oven giving the pan a shake. When the pan is shaken and it sounds like lumpy marbles rolling around, the peas are toasted about 40 -45 minutes.

I'm going to try this as soon as I get some chickpeas but I'm going to reduce the salt. I cut down on sodium and now when I taste something salted up, I can't eat it. I still use salt, just not very much of it.

Thanks for the idea. I'm going to make some for friends and family too.

I like the sound of your substitution, Mr. Green Jeans!

This sounds like a really good snack. With BEER!

I made two cans of these tonight, and used Tony Chachere's seasoning on them.

Might try some Frank's Hot Sauce on them next time.

Really good, and satisfying! Some very crunchy, others crunchy on the outside, and softer on the inside.

1/2 cup is 3 WW points plus, but 1/4 cup is more than enough for a snack.

Made this recipe from a supermarket magazine. Not quite as crunchy as I liked, first time around. And when I put them, cooled, in a Tupperware container, they got all soft.

Then I read somewhere NOT to store them in a container with a lid.

So, I popped them on alum. foil in the toaster oven, 350 degrees for 8 minutes - BOOM - perfectly crunchy! Excellent!

I'm going to experiment with these. Looking to try them tossed in bacon grease instead of evoo. And maybe season with chopped sage.

Re: Roasted Chickpeas
Lee, the time I made them I allowed them to sit out for quite a while covered in a paper towel.
Then I put them in Tupperware and they stayed pretty crunchy.
Thanks for the reminder.
I'd intended to make them again.
