Roasted Chickpeas

These make a nice crunchy snack. Southern Living had it this month--I changed it a bit. I didn't use oil and they came out great.

1 can of chickpeas -rinsed and drained. (I used one with no added salt)
seasoning (I used Cajun seasoning which had plenty of salt)

After rinsing and draining the chickpeas place them on a cookie sheet (with sides--or a jellyroll pan) that has been sprayed with Pam (or whatever). Shake on your seasoning of choice and bake at 400 or 405 for 45- 65minutes. Stir them at 15 minute intervals. Watch near the end--a few of mine got over cooked. Actually a few of mine got undercooked as well--so I needed to stir them a bit more. You want them golden brown --The picture above was my first try. Since then I cook them until they are more brown and nice and crunchy--just have to stir often. I cool them and put them in glass jars.

Isn't it hard to stir them when they're on a flat pan?

Not hard--my cookie sheet has one inch sides.
