I had never thought about eating chickpeas until I saw a cooking demonstration on our local TV station. They were tasting them and saying how good they were. I pulled up the recipe on their website and the recipe they have is from Chop Chop magazine.
They are quite good and have a nutty taste when roasted. This is the second time I have baked some, but did not add the cayenne pepper as hubby does not like it hot. I'll be making some for Christmas for everyone to snack on. Some of it will have cayenne pepper, for our son-in-law who will love it hot.

I make these all the time. A terrific snack.
Thanks for posting this. I may have found another food to eat. If all I had eaten was boiled peanuts, I would not like peanuts. But roasted, delicious. Roasting has a way of bringing out hidden flavors. I'm sure it's the same with chick peas. Glad you showed a picture of the canned peas. I was wondering where I could get some to try.
I am going to try these, I have had them before but never roasted. I am looking forward to serving them. I like the snowflake under the bowl, that is really pretty ;)
Doug, I found the Hanover Garbanzo Beans Chick Peas at Walmart. You will have to try them. It's a healthy snack. Probably need to cut back a little on the salt.
Robyn, I'll tell my husband that you like the snowflake. He likes to doodle and traced it on a piece of paper then cut it out. It came in handy. I'll probably use it on the table Christmas.
Easier, cheaper and healthier to find dried garbanzo beans (i.e., chick peas) at a store with bulk bins. That way you can cook them to the desired crunchiness (as opposed to the canned and overcooked mushy version) and omit salt altogether if your blood pressure is high. Experimenting with different herbs and spices is fun and absolutely no oil required. E-mail email@example.com for my fat-free and oh-so-tasty version.
If your Roasted Chickpeas are not crisp when you get ready to eat them, stick them in the oven and toast them for a few minutes. Mine have been a big hit. One comment was, "They taste kinda like chicken!!"
This would be a great snack to pack in kid's lunch box!!
Thanks so much for this recipe! And I loved your step by step photos. What a wonderful item to add to my healthy eating routine!
I had a similar recipe calling for ranch dressing mix. Then I saw a variety of popcorn flavorings at the store including a ranch one and they work really well too. If you can't find the popcorn flavorings at your store you can order lots of them on line.
