Crunchy Golden Roasted Chick Peas

Chickpeas aren't just for Hummus anymore!

When roasted these little protein packed nuggets turn into a golden crunchy snacker's delights.  They remind me of those prepackaged 'corn-nuts' because the crunch on these roasted chickpeas is incredible!

I'm sure everyone has a can or two of Chick Peas also known as Garbonzo Beans stuffed away on the back shelf in the pantry. Go get them & let's do this!


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
1- 15.5 ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
10-15 drops of Tabasco sauce-or to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste

Drain and rinse beans under cold water.  Spread on paper towel and dry thoroughly.  Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Spread chick peas in a single layer on your cookie sheet. Bake,shaking the tray every 10 minutes, until golden and crunchy for about 30-35 minutes. Cool completely before serving.  They hold the heat so please use caution.  Store your Roasted Chick Peas in an airtight container. Enjoy!

The World's Healthiest Foods website says: There's now direct evidence about garbanzo beans and appetite! Participants in a recent study reported more satisfaction with their diet when garbanzo beans were included, and they consumed fewer processed food snacks during test weeks in the study when garbanzo beans were consumed. They also consumed less food overall when the diet was supplemented with garbanzo beans.
