Garbanzo Nuts

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

My grandma reminded me of this recipe - that I used to whip together in univeristy - after returning from a trip to Spain. She mentioned having roasted chickpeas as a trail-mix like snack. I personally love them tossed into salads as a healthier alternative to croutons. Watch them carefully - they will burn if left alone!!

  • Finally got around to trying this recipe. Great idea! We use beans a lot and this is a neat way to do something different with them. Going to experiment with different seasonings. Thanks! - 5/18/09
