Roasted Chickpeas with Cajun Spices

The spices in these chickpeas sneak up on you after the first bite. The flavors are mellow, but if you want more heat, you can add a little more cayenne pepper.



Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. paprika
Ingredient Line: 
⅛ tsp. garlic powder
Ingredient Line: 
1 pinch cayenne pepper
Ingredient Line: 
3 cups cooked chickpeas, or 2 15-oz. cans low-sodium chickpeas, rinsed and drained
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Stir together paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne in small bowl. Set aside.

3. Pat chickpeas dry with clean towel. Spread on baking sheet, and bake 40 minutes. Transfer chickpeas to bowl, and toss with oil to coat. Sprinkle with spices, and stir to coat. Season with salt, if desired.

4. Decrease oven heat to 300°F. Spread chickpeas on baking sheet, and return to oven. Bake 12 to 18 minutes, or until chickpeas are crisp and golden. Cool.
