Italian Chickpea Nibbles
Blue * Serves 4
1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
kosher or sea salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
vegetable oil cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 400F.
In a bowl, combine the chickpeas, oil, garlic powder, oregano, basil, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray (or wipe with a paper towel that has some vegetable oil on it). Spread the chickpeas onto the baking sheet in one layer. Roast the chickpeas until they are nicely browned, about 10 minutes, tossing them halfway through. Remove from the oven and cool slightly.
