The other night Colton and I tried out a new Greek restaurant in town called “George’s Tavern”.
Once we placed out order they brought out a little dish of finger snacks. Usually ( here in Tanzania) the finger snacks are either popcorn or peanuts. Not very exciting.
George’s Tavern brought out a bowl of toasted and seasoned chickpeas. So delicious!
Naturally Colton and I immediately started talking about how we could easily make our own roasted chickpeas. And that’s what I’m sharing with you today:)
1-2 cans of chickpeas
Your choice of seasoning
(Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, honey, cinnamon, the possibilities are endless).
Pour the cans into a strainer and rinse with water.
Lay out chickpeas on a flat surface or cookie sheet to dry. ( I placed mine outside in the sun).
Once they are dry drizzle olive oil on a rimmed cookie sheet and pout chickpeas onto pan.
Shake the pan around a bit to make sure olive oil evenly coats the chickpeas.
