I can toss these back like popcorn or corn nuts; they certainly have an addictive quality. Now that I'm adding them to salads, too, I'm going to have to stock up on canned chickpeas.
Ingredients
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Spread chickpeas on a paper towel or tea towel to remove excess liquid.
  3. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, cumin and salt. Add chickpeas and toss to coast evenly.
  4. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 30-35 minutes or until chickpeas are crunchy. Give the pan a little shake halfway through the roasting time to help ensure even browning.
  5. Remove from oven. Cool. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days
