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.
