Easy Roasted Chickpeas

This is a wicked easy appetizer or snack, and they’re packed with protein and flavor. I make a big batch (double or triple this recipe) and break in into single servings, ready to grab and go in a snap.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can organic chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar (or other sweetener of choice)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, agave nectar/other sweetener, sea salt, and spices.
  3. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  4. Add the chickpeas to the bowl and stir to coat evenly.
  5. Pour the mixture into a glass casserole dish and roast for 30-40 minutes, until all of the liquid is absorbed.
  6. Turn the chickpeas two or three times during cooking.
  7. Enjoy!
