Toasted Garbanzos

Someone mentioned this recipe to be a loooong time ago and the first time i made it, i didn't toast the beans long enough, and well, it sucked.

But i decided to try it again and... success! The beans were toasty and crunchy and almost reminded me of a corn nut. I would like to play around with the recipe a bit with maybe using an oil substitute like pam or maybe even less oil, but the recipe as written is FAB! :)

Toasted Garbanzos

12 oz canned garbanzo beans
1 Tbsp olive oil
sea salt
ground cumin
curry powder

Drain garbanzos (or chickpeas). In a bowl, toss with olive oil, and season to taste with salt, and spices of your choice. Spread on a baking sheet.

Turn oven to 425 degrees F (230 degrees C) and put pan in oven immediately.

When oven reaches 425, bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until browned and crunchy. Watch carefully the last few minutes to avoid burning.

High in protien, low in fat, high in fiber, what's not to love!
