Roasted Chick Peas

Chick peas are a great little snack. They are packed full of fiber and have a good amount of protein too. They don't have much flavor on their own and that's what makes them so good to roast. You can basically use any combo of spices you enjoy, pop them in the oven and about 30 minutes later you have a nice crunch treat that is good to eat by itself or even on top of your salad.

What You Need:

1 can chick pea (garbanzo beans)
1/2 tbs olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper

What To Do:

Drain and rise the chick pea well. Dump them out onto some paper towels and pat them dry. Put them into a bowl and add in the oil, garlic (or other spices) a small pinch of salt and some pepper. Give it a stir and place them onto a baking sheet. Place in a preheat 400 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until brown and crunchy. I would give them a shake about half way through cooking and once it gets close to the 30 minutes, make sure to watch them. They can go from golden brown and yummy, to over cooked and not so good pretty quickly.
