Crunchy Garbanzo beans

These are a great option for a healthy snack, and are tasty when added to salads. Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas are high in fiber and protein which make them a great staple for those who are on a vegetarian diet.  The protein in these keep you full and energized, and the fiber is great for your body’s digestive system! Overall these make for a delicious, healthy snack.

Ingredients:

3 cans garbanzo beans

Garlic powder

Sea Salt

Pepper

Olive oil (to grease pan)

Preheat the oven to 450. Completely drain each can of garbanzo beans, being sure to get rid of all liquid. Evenly spread beans on a baking sheet and season to taste with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bake in the oven for about 45 mins, rotating the garbanzos occasionally.

You can change up the spices in this recipe to whatever variation suites you, often I will add white pepper to them for an extra kick.

This serves about 6 people.

  1. I’ve recently noticed a garbanzo-based snack “The Good Bean” at a chain of NYC markets. Will flavors such as cinnamon draw chickpea neophytes in? Who knows, but if anyone knows them as a snack better, it’s people of South Asian descent.
