moroccan roasted chickpeas
1 can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 TB olive oil
½ ts Moroccan Spice Mix (I used one and a half teaspoons (ts) of this)
salt to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp sea salt)
moroccan spice mix:
2 ts ground cumin
1 ts ground coriander
1/2 ts chile powder (did not use this, didn’t have any)
1/2 ts sweet paprika
1/2 ts ground cinnamon
1/4 ts ground allspice
1/4 ts ground ginger powder
1/8 ts cayenne pepper (I used ½ ts)
a pinch ground cloves
1/2 ts sugar (I used 1 ts)
1 ts curry powder (this is my own addition)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drain the chickpeas into a colander and rinse well with cold water until no more foam appears. Let beans drain for 5-10 minutes, then pat dry with a cloth or paper towel if they still look wet.
While the chickpeas drain, make the spice mix. (store leftover spice mix in an airtight container for other uses.)
When the chickpeas are well-drained and dry, toss them together with the olive oil, spice mix, and salt. Arrange in single layer on baking sheet.
Roast 40-50 minutes, (my chickpeas were done in 40 minutes) or until they are slightly browned and make a rattling sound when you shake the baking sheet. Serve warm or cool.
