Food: New Year’s Resolution Food #1 – Roasted Chickpeas

January 1, 2013

Christmas 2012 076

Chickpeas fall into the “healthy yet still high in calories” food category. But, definitely a better snack than potato chips or ice cream, and filling so you don’t need to eat too many. Plus, easy to make and easy to experiment with. Below is a basic recipe, but change up the spices to your taste – add herbs, lemon juice, cinnamon and sugar, whatever you like.

Roasted Chickpeas, basic recipe:
2 cans chickpeas
garlic salt
paprika
olive oil

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Drain and rinse chickpeas, put into small bowl. Coat lightly with olive oil, add seasonings to taste. Put in a single layer on a jelly roll pan. Roast at 400 for 30-40 minutes. The longer you roast, the crunchier they will be, and you should give them a toss around 30 minutes if you plan to go for 40.
