Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

i’ve been eating a lot of lentils and chickpeas for lunch recently- i love that you can prepare them ahead of time, plus they are nutritious!

since i love anything with a little kick, i thought this would be a fun recipe to try.

15-ounce can Chickpeas
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt to taste
Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning

Heat your oven to 375 F.
Drain the chickpeas and let them sit in cool water for a minute or so to release some of the sodium.

Place chickpeas in a strainer to drain. Give that strainer a good shake to remove excess water. Spread the chickpeas out on your pan. You can either dry the chickpeas with a paper towel, or go the low-tech route and let them sit for a few minutes to dry out.

Sprinkle the chickpeas with olive oil and toss them so that they’re all thoroughly coated.

Place the pan in the heated oven and roast the chickpeas for 40 minutes.

Season with salt and spices.
