Shelly's Roasted Chickpeas/Garbanzos

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Bekah

An adopted recipe from my dear friend Shelly: "From Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything." The beans tend to "pop" during cooking and a few may land on the bottom of your oven." Feel free to change the seasonings, and I have extended the cooking time due to reviews that they weren't Crispy enough.

These are AWESOME tasting little buggers!! I roasted these in my toaster oven, which is a bit unpredictable in temp., so I think I could have left them in a little longer as they were still a bit soft. But, the taste is WONDERFUL!!!! I love the fact that this is a sinful tasting snack, but yet it is so good for you! Definitely a keeper! Thanks Clintsgirl!! ~Manda
