Baked Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans



I love this canned chickpeas, it provides such a convenient for me. I have since used it in stir-fried, my version of Japanese curry and baked it as snack. Sharing with you the crispy snack version. You can create your own seasoning mix for the chickpeas as well. A healthy and easy snack for your afternoon.





Ingredients:

  • 1 canned of chickpeas/ garbanzo beans
  • Olive oil
  • Cumin powder
  • Paprika
  • Fennel seeds powder
  • White sesame seeds
  • Sea salt


Method:


1. Washed and drain chickpeas in a colander. Spread them on a baking sheet and pat dry with paper towels.

2. Sprinkle some olive oil (or extra virgin olive oil) on top, add some cumin powder, paprika, fennel seeds powder, sesame seeds and sea salt to taste. Mix them well with your hands and spread evenly on the baking sheet.


3. Preheat 400'F oven. Bake for 30 minutes, stir them at 15 minutes. Turn oven to broil (500'F) and broil for 3-5 minutes or until crisp.

i am not a big fan of chick peas maybe i dont know how to really use it?

those chick peas you have there remind me of those asian snacks in a can. i think they are peanuts covered in coconut?
