Chickpeas are possibly one of my top 5 favorite foods. According to Wikipedia (which is so reliable, I know!) chickpeas are one of the earliest cultivated legumes: 7,500-year-old remains have been found in the Middle East!

They’re incredibly versatile and can be used in everything from salads to pasta dishes; from Mediterranean to Middle Eastern.

One of my absolute favorite ways to prepare these is to coat them with spices (any you’d like, you can make all kinds of variations!), a little olive oil and bake them in the oven for about 25 minutes, or until they’re crisp and easy to pop into your mouth!

This is one of my faaaavorite snacks; I love making them in advance and then just snacking on them when I’m hungry! 😀

ingredients

1 can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and patted dry with paper towels

1 tsp tsp chili powder

Juice from 1 lime

1/2 tbsp of olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

directions

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Combine the chickpeas in a medium bowl with the olive oil and lime juice.

Add the chili powder, salt and pepper and stir until evenly coated.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until they’re more firm than soft and have a little browning on the outside.

SNACK AND ENJOY! 😀
