I’ve seen versions of roasted chickpeas popping up everywhere lately. The first time I saw them I didn’t think much of them, but then they showed up in a few magazines and all over the food blogging world. I figured they must be worth a try. And they were! I’m a sucker for crunchy, salty snacks. I can’t even allow potato chips in my house – whole bags can disappear in the span of an afternoon. And don’t get me started on Triscuits. So believe me when I say I know a good snack when I see one. And these are good. They’re surprisingly crunchy and savory, and a little bit addictive, but maybe that’s just me.
I chose the Creole seasoning because I as in the mood for a little flavor kick, but I’ve seen countless variations of roasted chickpeas. Some of the combinations I have on my list to try are parmesan with smoky paprika, and garlic with rosemary. Use your imagination to match up a few of your favorite flavor combinations and try these out. Chickpeas are high in protein and fiber, so this is a simple way to fit a little extra nutritional punch while you’re having your afternoon snack.
