Oh chickpeas. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
1. Creamy in a hummus
2. Mixed into a salad
3. Smashed on a sandwich
And I'm adding a new one today.
4. Crispy and by the handful
Roasted Chickpeas (Cooking technique from A Spicy Perspective although it is all over the internet)
1 can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and patted dry
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground pepper*
Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
Spread the chickpeas on the baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle on the salt and pepper-- I think I used about 1/4 tsp of each. Mix to coat.
Bake for 15 minutes. Stir to mix well. Bake for additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before eating. They will crisp up a little bit.
*Feel free to try out whatever seasonings you would like.
