During our fun-filled family vacation in Florida, I must have flipped through twenty-five different magazines throughout the week. My favorite part of magazines are the variety of new recipes and pictures that go along. One of the recipes that caught me eye was this one. I am a big fan of using beans in recipes. They have multiple health benefits, and they are relatively cheap.
The star of this recipe is chickpeas which are also known as garbanzo beans. Each half cup serving of these beans contain 6 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein and only 2 grams of fat. They also have 110 calories in each half cup. Hope you enjoy this easy snack!
Drain 1 can of chickpeas. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Drizzle the chickpeas with a healthy amount of olive oil. Season to your own taste. I just used salt and pepper but you could use whatever spices and herbs you prefer. Roast in a 400 degree oven for 25 minutes.
