Garlic and Herb Roasted Chickpeas

Since discovering Roasted Chickpeas with Cumin late last year, I have been enjoying them as a snack ever since. Just like many different meals I’m always on the hunt for new or usual snack ideas. I would never really have thought of roasting chickpeas and eating them as a snack. I saw this idea on social media and I thought it was a good idea.

However, I decided to add spices to my recipe and they were simply delicious. Ever since I’ve been trying to think of new flavours to add to roasted chickpeas. Then it hit me when I was cooking our chips with garlic granules and dried mixed herbs. Suddenly I thought I can use this combination on my roasted chickpeas. So I did and they were delicious.

My husband Howard and son Ted are not big chickpea fans. That meant I could enjoy this snack all by myself and so I did. The garlic and herb coating was a yummy way to eat chickpeas and one I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of this vegetable.
