Easy Recipes to Feel Good is a monthly recipe post for our readers and past participants who recognize the payoff of eating foods that support us, but also have more on their schedule than cooking food.
This month we’re serving up Green Mountain Roasted Chickpeas. Lots of times women say to me “I want a snack with some crunch to it,” and they aren’t talking baby carrots.
The nice thing about roasting chickpeas is they get crunchy and crispy, which is much different from their typical creamy consistency when right out of the can or reconstituted. In this recipe I use canned rather than reconstituted, simply to save time.
Green Mountain Roasted Chickpea Snack Recipe
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 3 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- Salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Open can of chickpeas and rinse. Once thoroughly rinsed, pat dry with a dishcloth or paper towel.
- Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and coat the peas well with the oil and spice.
Pour onto a sheet pan and place in the oven. Shake the pan about every 5 minutes in order to brown the peas evenly. Once brown, about 15-20 minutes, remove from the oven and cool.
