Smokey Roasted Chickpeas

Sometimes in the late afternoons, I get an urge to snack.  Roasted chickpeas are a great, healthy snack alternative.  They can be done sweet or savory.  I made a sweet version with my Maple Cinnamon Chickpeas.  This is a savory option.

I am warning you, these are highly addictive!  They are very easy to make.  If you don’t eat them all at once, you can store them in a container with rice scattered at the bottom.  The rice will help absorb the moisture and keep them crispy.  In addition to the spices I list, you can also add a pinch of cayenne if you like some extra heat.

  1. They are sooo good when they are crunchy ! Addictive too! I found a recipe that uses no oil but 1/4 c of light soy sauce with lime or lemon juice & 9 different spices it is so good. I will check out the siracha recipe.
