Roasted Chickpeas – Feel Peaceful

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Dash of cayenne

Instructions

Spread the chickpeas over a baking pan and gently dry them with a paper towel. Place the tray in a 200F degree oven for 10-15 minutes, to help them dry out.

Remove the tray from the oven and raise the heat to 325F.

Add the spices and oil to the tray and toss well to coat (use a spoon and be careful, the tray will be hot).

Bake 20 minutes, and give the chickpeas a stir. Cook another 15-20 minutes, until they are sufficiently browned.
