Crunchy, salty, and packed with protein, chickpeas are the perfect snack. Just one cup of chickpeas has 39 grams of protein! I can eat a whole batch of spicy chickpeas in one sitting, so the recipe below is two servings worth. This recipe is SO simple! All you have to do is season the chickpeas with spices and olive oil, toss them, and roast them!
-2 (15 oz) cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), thoroughly rinse and drain
-2 tablespoons EVOO
-1 teaspoon cumin
-1 teaspoon chili powder
-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
-1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Place rack in the middle of the oven.
2. Put chickpeas in a bowl with all spices and olive oil. Evenly coat the chickpeas, then place on a lined cookie sheet. Roast in the oven for 40 minutes or longer depending on how crispy you prefer you want them.
