My coffee cup completely missed my mouth this morning and I got coffee down my shirt. So, that’s how today is shaping up. On to these chickpeas. Because they are wonderful, and if it was possible to marry an inanimate object I would marry these chickpeas. If you’re looking at your screen with that Liz-be-tripping-again look on your face, I have only one word to say to you. Okay, I have several. Spicy. Smoky. Crunchy. Or, as I just improperly spelled that last one, CHRUNCHY.
These chickpeas are perfect in every single way. They’re good as a snack. They’re good tossed in a salad. They’d probably be good in some fusion taco, but I didn’t try that and therefore cannot speak to its actual merits. But, THERE ARE SO MANY OPTIONS. I finished the batch and immediately wanted to make a new one. Try these, guys. You will not regret it!
BBQ Roasted Chickpeas
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 can chickpeas, washed and drained
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat an oven to 425 degrees.
Pat your chickpeas dry. Mix the spices together and set aside. Mix together the chickpeas, oil, and 3/4 of the spice mix. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, toss with a spatula or wooden spoon, and bake for another 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and add more of the spice mixture until you have your desired potency of spiciness.
