Roasted Chickpeas

  1. Take 1 lb. bag of dried chickpeas and put them in 2 quarts (8 cups) of water.
  2. Bring them to a boil and let them boil for a few minutes.
  3. Turn the heat off, moved them to a cooler part of the stove, and cover them.
  4. Let them sit there for about an hour.
  5. You can do another boil to cook them (these are just the instructions for a soak), but without doing this if they seems like a good consistency you can go ahead and roast them without the extra soak.
  6. Put down aluminum foil, shiny side up, and sprayed it with cooking spray.
  7. Use one tsp of garlic salt and about 3/4 tsp of regular salt and roast them at 350* for 30 minutes.
  8. Definitely not like regular chickpeas, AWESOME.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
