R Is for Roasted Chickpeas
Nuts usually take first place when it comes to a crunchy snack that you can pick at anytime, but we’re making the case for roasted chickpeas instead. Be it at a bar or a fancy cocktail party, roasted chickpeas can play the same role that nuts play.
A Case for Roasted Chickpeas
If you already have a can of chickpeas tucked away in your pantry, you have all the makings for this crunchy snack. Simply drain them, dry them well, toss them with olive oil and salt, and roast them at high heat for about 30 minutes. A good sprinkle of salt still makes crispy chickpeas a hit, but the best part about this snack is how versatile it is.
Spices like curry powder, smoked paprika, cumin, and garlic powder are also winners. A glass of wine or a cold beer, while most definitely not necessary, is a welcome companion to the crispy chickpeas.
