Roasted Garbanzo Beans
- 2 cans Garbanzo beans
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder or granulated garlic (more if you love a garlicky flavor, less if you don't)
- 2 tbsp dried italian herbs
- a pinch of salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Drain and rinse the beans. In a medium sized bowl, add the beans and the rest of the ingredients and mix until the beans are well coated. Spread in a single layer on the cookie sheet. Bake in the oven for about an hour or until the beans have shriveled slightly, are browned, and are crunchy. Because I am a lover of cheese, I sometimes add a little parmiggiano reggiano (parmesan) to them before baking as well.
These are great take along snacks. Daniel LOVES them and if allowed, would eat the whole bowl all at once! I also like to put these on my salads sometimes in the place of sunflower seeds or sliced almonds!
Enjoy and until next time, happy and HEALTHY cooking and EATING!
