We try a lot of new dishes around here and it is hard to find recipes worthy of top honors amongst all of us- or as we call them, signature dishes. I’d been seeing roasted chickpeas all over blogs and recipes sites, and LOVE my easy crockpot hummus. So, it only made sense to go ahead and give roasting chickpeas a try.
Mix up some chick peas, a bit of olive oil and some spices and spread them on a baking sheet. Bake, stir and bake some more and that is it. These are so easy that it is almost surprising how good they are.
Upon taking them out of the oven my 7 year old eyed them rather skeptically and inquired as to what they were. When I told him roasted chickpeas he still seemed suspicious. But upon trying them he totally switched modes, insert rock out hand motions and air guitar complete with approving head nodding. No, it wasn’t me :) My little guy LOVED these! He couldn’t wait to have more, and then some more after that. It is so nice to make a snack that is healthy AND everyone loves it! These are a hit with the whole family and were practically consumed before I could even snap a picture. Next in the works is creating a recipe for chile limon flavored chickpeas for hubby.
Have you made roasted chickpeas yet? I’m probably the very last one, just like with my venture into making kale chips and explaining cow chips simultaneously. But, that’s a-ok with me :)
