Roasted Chickpeas

I made these for something to put in Ben's lunch and to eat as a snack. They were very good!


Spicy Oven-Roasted Chickpeas
from Apartment Therapy The Kitchn




Ingredients
1 15 ounce can chickpeas
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon chunky sea salt
2 teaspoons spice like garam masala

Directions
Heat the oven 400°F. Pour the chickpeas into a colander and drain and rinse very well under running water. Pat dry.

Toss the chickpeas with the olive oil and spread out on a large cookie sheet. Roast for 30-40 minutes or until brown and crispy. Turn and stir every ten minutes so they don't burn.

Take out and toss to taste with salt and spices.


Garam Masala Spice Mixture
makes about 1/4 cup

2 sticks of cinnamon
10 green cardamom pods
8 black cardamom pods
15 cloves
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
1 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
2 dried red chiles

Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat until fully heated and slightly smoking. Add all ingredients and shake and stir for about a minute, or until the spices smell toasted, are slightly darker, and give off just a slight bit of smoke. Remove from the heat and let cool. Grind to a fine powder in a spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle, and store in an airtight container.
