I am ALL about a salt/savory snack when it comes to movie time (or 3pm every day...let's not beat around the bush!). These turmeric roasted chickpeas are really easy to make, have killer flavor, pack a bit of protein (chickpeas!) + host all the benefits that come along with turmeric.
Second favorite use = instead of croutons in a salad. I need a little crunch with my lettuce and other toppings and these chickpeas do just the trick!
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon olive or grapeseed oil
1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1. Open and rinse the can of chickpeas.
2. On a lined baking sheet (parchment, silpat or tinfoil will do) toss chickpeas with olive oil, salt and spices.
3. Bake for 20 minutes. Jiggle the pan to move the chickpeas around and ensure even cooking. Bake another 20 minutes and remove to cool.
4. Store in a container or plastic bag at room temperature.
