Pinterest Challenge – Day 4

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas-Pin

Ooo wee! These pack a kick. If you like spicy, this is the snack for you. Not much of a fan of heat? Try less pepper or maybe add some smoked paprika instead.

This recipe is incredibly simple, which makes it perfect for last-minute get togethers, a pot luck or just an afternoon on the couch watching TV. They’re also great in a salad! NOTE: If you want these to be crispy,  bake them longer than the time listed in the recipe. (Of course, you’ll want to test them every minute or so beyond the recommended baking time so they don’t burn.)

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas by Martha Stewart

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 cans (15.5 ounces each) chickpeas, rinsed, drained and patted dry
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon cumin seed
Coarse salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Pour olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet and place in oven until oil is hot, 3 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine chickpeas, cayenne pepper, and cumin seed. Season with salt and toss to combine. Place chickpea mixture on hot baking sheet and spread in a single layer. Bake until chickpeas are crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels and let cool slightly. Serve warm.
