Garbanzo Bean Crispy Snack


2 cups garbanzo beans
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
Spice blend of your choice (curry-garam masala or cinnamon-ginger, for example)


1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Lay paper towl on a baking sheet, and spread the beans over. Use another paper towel to gently press and absorb the water on the beans. Roll the beans around with the paper towel to also remove the thin skin from any of the beans. Discard the skins and the paper towels.

3. Drizzle the olive oil over the beans and use your hands or a spatula to toss around and coat. Roast for 30-40 minutes until the beans are a deep golden brown and crunchy. Make sure that the beans do not burn.

4. Season with salt and spice blend.
