How do you dress up your lunch?
Makes about 1 cup
1 can chickpeas
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon Nutritional Yeast (or Parmesan)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas, then pat them dry.
2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the chickpeas, oil, and seasonings. Mix until everything is evenly coated. Pour the chickpeas onto a baking pan covered in aluminum foil and shake gently until the chickpeas are in one layer.
3. Roast at 450 for 10-15 minutes (I did 10 in my toaster oven, 15 would be for a regular oven, where the heat source is further away), toss, and roast for another 10-15 minutes until golden and beginning to brown.
4. Turn off the oven, crack it open, and let the chickpeas cool in there for another 20 minutes (this will keep them even crispier!). Serve room temperature as a snack or toss into a salad.
