That said, though, I get to know the ins and outs of those foods pretty darn well.
Enter roasted chickpeas.
Wow. They are good. They are absolutely my latest food obsession. I make them a lot.
They are nice and crunchy, a perfect alternative to popcorn or nuts. They are low in fat on their own. High in protein (one can has roughly 20 grams--and that's how much I eat...). High in flavor. And easy to make. Really. Perfect snack food? Absofreakinglutely.
You can find hundreds of recipes online. You can make them sweet, spicy, salty, or a combination of all of those. Try them all.
Here is the one I loosely follow, via This Chick Cooks.
One piece of advice: drain and rinse the chickpeas very well. Then towel dry them. Then lay them flat upon a couple paper towels to get nice and dry. I typically allow them to dry for about an hour.
Ready to be devoured. And oh, they always are!
