Roasted Chickpeas

I'm not normally much of a snacker but I love to have a little something to keep in my desk at work just in case I miss my breakfast or lunch. A while back, my mom told me about these roasted chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) she had made and how good they were. I knew right away I had to try them!

I started with three cans of chickpeas, well-rinsed and drained.

I tossed them with a couple tablespoons of olive oil and seasoned to my liking. I used some seasoned salt, fresh ground pepper and dried dill this time but think maybe next time I would like to try some paprika. Really, you could use any seasonings you like here.

I used LOTS of dill...I'm all about the dill.

I spread them out in one layer on a lined pan and put them in an oven preheated to 375.

After about 40 minutes I took them out and tossed them so they will roast evenly.

I put them back in for another 40 minutes or so.

Let them cool well and store in an airtight container.

I'm sure they would be fine for a week or so but somehow they never seem to last that long. These are a great snack and super good for you. They are high in protein too so they help keep you full!

Tomorrow I'll be showing you another bean recipe I borrowed from another blogger. See you on Cinco de Mayo!
