Roasted Chickpeas

Lately Mike has been putting Chickpeas on EVERYTHING - salads, ground beef tacos, etc.we always have them in the house so I can make hummus, but when I eat them plain or on something I want them to be crunchy for some reason. I was poking around over the last couple of days and apparently roasted chickpeas are the new thing. So, I had to try them. You don't have to feel bad about this snack - garbanzo beans are insanely good for you!

1 can of garbanzo beans (aka chick peas) drained
1 and 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lay the chickpeas out flat and roast for about 30 minutes tossing twice. When done, pour into a bowl.

This is just the version I created - I think they would be good with lemon, salt and rosemary, or cilantro lime and crushed red pepper flakes, or even just cinnamon and sugar, etc. Make your own version - just use the beans and the olive oil and tweak the rest!

I'm off to pack for our weekend trip to Montana - still not sure how I was talked into it with all the birthday's and things going on this weekend.  Sunday is my dear friend Kelsey's birthday and ABBY'S - I know she doesn't know it's her birthday because she's a dog, but I still feel bad I won't be here to spoil her. And Monday is Kelly's birthday!

Would it be weird if I packed these roasted chick peas as a snack for the plane??

I'm prepping food for next week before I leave as well - our kitchen will be under construction when we get back, so I'm trying to make things we can simply heat up! I can't wait to show pictures of the kitchen's progress. We've gotten quite a few other house projects done I can't wait to share as well. More soon!

In the meantime - I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!

No, it wouldn't be weird for you to pack these on the plane..I think people would be ENVIOUS of you cause we all know roasted chickpeas are the upgraded peanuts of airlines ;) so make everyone jealous!! Have fun on your trip and stay warm!!

Wow, I love chickpeas but have never had them roasted. Going to have to try this! And, I agree with Julie, it's not odd to have them on a plane. Certainly better than something loud, like celery. Have a great trip. :)
