Give Chickpeas a Chance

This time of year, you are typically hearing about roasted chestnuts, but roasted chickpeas are a simple snack to serve for guests, or just munch on year round.

Chickpeas (also known as Garbanzo Beans) are a good source of fiber and protein. They are low in fat and packed with healthy vitamins and minerals. They are often associated with hummus, but these little protein powerhouses are tasty all on their own!

The chickpeas in this photo are Cajun flavored ones that I ordered from Feel Good Foods through Farm Fresh Delivery, but you can easily roast your own. Spice things up by trying some different variations such as Moroccan, Curry or Spicy.
