Roasted Garbonzo Beans

Or chickpeas. What ever you call them, they have been all over pinterest lately and i'm starting this cooking kick with a weird recipe. The only time I remember having garbonzo beans is when they are used to make hummus. MMMMMM hummus. Love that stuff. Any ways, I found this recipe for roasted garbonzo beans so I wanted to check out what all the fuss was about. I found this lovely food blog with an easy recipe. Go check out their cute blog.

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

1 15-ounce can chickpeas
1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drain and rinse chickpeas and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.In a medium bowl, combine the spices and the olive oil. Toss the chickpeas in the spice mixture and spread the seasoned chickpeas over a lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes and then remove the pan from the oven. Use a spatula to toss the chickpeas, then replace the pan and cook for another 15-20 minutes or until browned (but not burned) and crispy. Allow to cool. Snack away.
These snacks turned out pretty yummy. They remind me of Cornnuts from the gas stations. There was just the right about of spice. The only part of the recipe I had trouble with was the lined baking sheet. When I put the sheet in the oven, the whole apartment filled with smoke! I tried to just open some windows to let the smoke out but eventually I just removed the wax paper on the sheet and had the chickpeas rest on the baking sheet itself. It did not seem to screw the snack up at all.
A yummy and healthy snack

You can't really see the smoke but it was every where!
