Oven Roasted Chickpeas
Oven roasted chickpeas are a great protein-rich snack option. They make for a crunchy treat on their own while watching tv, a crouton replacement for a salad, or an addition to vegetable soup. The crunch is maintained when consumed fresh out of the oven, but can still be enjoyed as a softer version the next day.
Chickpeas are high in fibre and protein, help to regulate blood sugar levels, and keep you feeling full longer. Enjoy this unique treat!
1 can chickpeas
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp of spice of choice
- Preheat the oven to 450F.
- Rinse chickpeas well, dry well between two dishcloths.
- In a bowl, mix the chickpeas, olive oil, sea salt, and spice of choice (ie. cayenne pepper, cumin, garlic salt, chilli pepper, turmeric).
- Spread single layer on a baking sheet, and bake for 20-25 min, until browned and crunchy. Watch carefully the last few minutes to avoid burning.
