This roasted garlic chickpea recipe may be the ultimate easy snack solution. Mix with oil and simple seasonings, roast, and enjoy!
Where does one begin when explaining the amazingness of roasted chickpeas? Nutritional value? Tastiness? Affordability? Versatility? Let’s not worry about that just now. Instead, let’s discuss how unbelievably easy this snack is to make. All you need are chickpeas, an oven, and some simple seasonings. Ready? Let's make snacks!
This recipe was born of necessity. When I was working in NYC, I needed snacks. Let's be honest... I've always needed snacks. I'm the kind of person that absolutely cannot sit still, especially at a desk for extended periods of time without something to keep me occupied. Enter snacks. I started down a dark path of potato chips and trail mix (expensive and often loaded with bad calories.) And then I decided to create my own healthier snack arsenal at home on the cheap.
So obviously, I love to keep roasted chickpeas on hand for quick snacking because they stay crispy and fresh for days on end. BUT – I also like to add them to sweet potato noodles or salads or stuffed sweet potatoes when the urge strikes. And yes, I'm aware I have an
obsession with/love affair with sweet potatoes.
The sooner you make these chickpeas, the sooner you will understand what I mean when I say they are the BEST savory homemade snack option ever. I'm certainly partial to sweet snacks, but these do a fantastic job of meeting that salty craving that sometimes hits you. Make these, keep a stash in your purse for sudden hanger strikes, sneak them into the movies, and most definitely keep some at home for dinner topping situations.Print
