Roasted Chick Peas

This is a very nutritious side dish, starter, and snack that is easy quick and tasty. You can go crazy with different spices. Chickpeas don’t care.





2 (15-ounce) cans of chickpeas

1 Tbs olive oil

1 Tbs Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Spice

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tap garlic powder

Salt substitute & coarse ground pepper to taste


    1. Rinse, drain, and dry the chickpeas. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cover a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper.
    2. In a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle on the spices, salt, and pepper and toss gently until evenly coated.
    3. Spread the chickpeas out in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes, pausing to shake the pan briefly at the 15- and 30-minute mark, or until the chickpeas feel dry and crispy to the touch. (Although please note that they will continue to crisp up even more as they cool after baking.)
