I have another recipe for you today involving chick peas. I went to Costco recently and stocked up on a bunch. I hope you tried my version of hummus from last week. This next one is so super easy you just HAVE TO make it!
I first heard of roasting chick peas years ago from my friend Karen. I don't remember exactly how the original version went because I've experimented throughout the years. This is the one I make most often. My girls just love it!!
This is what we start off with:
I use a square Pyrex dish just because it seems to be a good size for one can - I'm guessing it's an 8 X 8 pan. Open the can of chick peas and drain as much of the liquid as possible and pour the chick peas into the pan.
Look how good they look all hot and bubbly from the oven. Mmmm...can you smell it? The scent of garlic is just so amazing!
I think we need a closeup of this one
Roasted Chick Peas
1 can chick peas - I used a 15.5 oz can
5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
1 - drain liquid from chick peas and pour in pan
2 - pour on the olive oil
3 - sprinkle garlic powder to cover
4 - sprinkle paprika to cover
5 - freshly ground black pepper - as little or as much as you like
6 - mix all together
7 - place pan in a 400 degree oven for 55 minutes checking every 15 minutes to mix and to see how brown they are gtting
8 - optional - put under broiler for 2 minutes
Next week I'll have a delicious recipe for Moroccan chick pea soup. I'm telling you, you will definitely thank me for that one!
