Roasted Chick Pea Snack

roasted-chick-peas

I’m always looking for snacks that fill me up without triggering a cascade of cravings later on.  My wife made this one for me today and it fit the bill.  It’s a great snack but it also works as a side dish or salad additive.  Chick peas, have tons of with fiber and protein.  You can use any spices you like or adjust the spice to your taste. The possibilities are endless. If you don’t like curry, try using salt and garlic powder.

Servings: 3 servings • Size: 5 oz
Calories: 149.4 • Fat: 3.4 g • Carb: 29.2 g • Fiber: 10.5 g • Protein: 7.5 g

Ingredients:

  • 15 oz can chickpeas, drained
  • olive oil spray
  • salt
  • 1 tsp chili pepper powder (to taste)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375°. Drain chickpeas in a colander and let them dry completely. Pat dry with a paper towel if needed.

Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer and roast for about 30-35 minutes, shaking the pan every ten minutes. All ovens are different so make sure they don’t burn. They will be golden brown and crunchy on the inside when done, not moist.

In a medium bowl, combine all the spices. Remove chickpeas from oven when done and spray with olive oil spray. Immediately toss with spices while hot. Eat at room temperature.

  1. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally
    educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.

  2. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but
    it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know
    any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  3. Thanks for a marvelous posting! I genuinely enjoyed reading it,
    you can be a great author. I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and will often come back in the future.
    I want to encourage you to definitely continue your great writing,
    have a nice evening!

  4. I leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a blog or I have
    something to add to the conversation. Usually it is a result of the passion communicated in the article
    I looked at. And after this article Roasted Chick Pea Snack | The Weight Loss Counter Revolution.
    I was excited enough to post a commenta response 😉
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be simply me or do some of the responses look like written by brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list the complete urls of all your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
