Few foods are as good hot and they are cold. Pizza, cheese, chocolate, and cookies. That is about all on my list. But this is my newest addition. These are great hot out of the oven, or the next day on top of your salad. These little nuggets are packed with flavor, crispy, and healthy to boot! With a few simple ingredients, and only a few minutes in the oven, this snack is one you don't have to feel guilty about!
Roasted Spiced Chickpeas
1 can chickpeas
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon yellow curry powder
1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Rinse and drain chickpeas. Pat dry to remove excess moisture.
Add to a medium mixing bowl along with curry powder, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili flakes, salt and pepper.
Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil into bowl and toss or stir to combine. Be sure every chickpea is coated with spices.
On a large baking sheet spread chickpeas out into one layer. Place in the oven to roast for 15-20 minutes. After 10 minutes remove from oven and shake or stir to prevent sticking and burning.
Remove from oven once chickpeas are brown and crispy! Enjoy as a snack, appetizer, or on top of salad!
