Roasted chickpeas

One of my pitfalls when it comes to healthy eating is snacks. I’ll have a nice bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, a smoothie for a mid-morning snack, a salad for lunch…and then a bag of chips. Or a few cookies. Or some candy. Most of the time, it’s not that I crave those specific foods – I just want salty or sweet. So when I discovered roasted chickpeas last week, I was ecstatic. A healthy food made even more delicious, that satisfies the urge for crunchy and salty? You bet. Not only do I snack on them, I add them to salads for a little crunch and protein, and sprinkle them on creamy soups.

Roasted chickpeas are having a moment right now. You can find recipes for them on many of the major food websites and blogs (for example: here, here, here and here). My favorite method is from the site Eat Life Whole.

Have you tried roasted chickpeas?
