Spicy and Crunchy Curry Chickpeas

Makes 4, 1/4 cup servings

Ingredients

  • 1–15 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more if you like it hot!)
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. After rinsing the chickpeas, lay them out on a clean kitchen towel and pat dry.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, curry powder and cayenne pepper. Add in the chickpeas and toss to coat.
  4. Spread the chickpeas in one layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, stirring once or twice while baking. Or until the chickpeas look “dry” and have a slight crunch to them—they’ll get increasingly crunchy as they cool.
