Tasty Tuesday: Crunchy Toasted Chickpeas

I’m always looking for ways to make crunchy, salty snacks and this recipe is a keeper! Seriously, if I can munch on these savory toasted garbanzo beans, I’ll give up pretzels and chips forever! (I’m pretty sure I can’t give up crackers like cheezits and rice crackers though, because I’ll always need a vehicle for really good cheese.)

These crunchy chickpeas are also a great alternative to nuts for those who are allergic or just don’t like nuts. So yes, they can go right next to the mints on the buffet table. Best of all, this recipe is super easy…easy enough to make them often.

I  use a lot of garbanzo beans for homemade hummus so I’m already a fan. This recipe elevates the humble chickpea/garbanzo bean to a pantry staple in our house. Loaded with fiber and protein, these beans are a great snack. And yes, I DO use the names, chickpea and garbanzo bean, interchangeably. If someone is searching for a snack like this, I definitely want them to find this recipe!

This is my last Tasty Tuesday post here on High Country Parent. I hope you’ll stop by My Sister’s Kitchen to visit from time to time because I will still be writing there. In fact, later this week I’ll be featuring a new fudgy gluten-free brownie recipe as well as a delicious Orzo pasta dish with grilled chicken and peppers.

I want to thank Sarah Pinnix for the opportunity to write for all you parents and grandparents in the High Country. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing good food with you!
