Garbanzo beans (or chickpeas) are probably my favorite type of bean because of how versatile they are. Throw them in a salad raw, blend them up for a tasty dip, add them to soups for some extra protein, or roast them and turn them into a crunchy snack. Whip these up for something healthy, quick, and crowd-pleasing!
Preheat your oven to 425° F
- 1 container (16oz) chickpeas – drained, rinsed, and patted dry
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp coriander
- small pinch (or more, if you like) cayenne pepper
- salt and pepper to taste
Toss the chickpeas in your olive oil and spice mixture. Spread the chickpeas on a baking sheet in an even layer. Bake them for 20 minutes, or until they’re nice and crispy. Let them cool before snacking!
