Spicy Roasted Chick Peas

I recently saw a recipe on Yummy Chunklet a another great food blog for roasted chick peas and loved it in fact its quite popular in the food blogging world at present. Since I have been not cooking a lot of Indian food lately. I figured this would be an easy way to make a spicy snack for hubby. I roasted 1/2 spicy and 1/2 with just sea salt and cumin. This is a great recipe the only tricky part is taking the skins of the chick peas.

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt 
  • Generous sprinkling of cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • about 1/4 cup of freshly chopped cilantro 
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2.  Drain and rinse the chickpeas, dry chick peas with a paper towel and remove the skins.
  3. Add chick peas to a big baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil roast for 15 minutes
  4. Remove from oven and shake the chickpeas, and roast for another 15 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Finally take the chick peas out of the oven and mix in the salt, cilantro, cumin and cayenne pepper, an Indian masala powder would also work well 
  6. roast another few minutes and they are done
The day I made this hubby came home from work and eat all of them in one sitting and happily said it was great to eat something spicy, I plan to make some more for him this week :-)

Has anyone else made this before?
