Chickpeas, roasted until they’re crisp and cooled to crunchiness, are a great, guiltless snack food. Rinse canned chickpeas and blot them dry, then toss with a bit of olive oil and salt and roast.

SweetPea914 bakes them at 350°F to 400°F for about 45 minutes. Along with the salt, add whatever spices you like. Chowhounds have tried red pepper flakes; sage and black pepper; curry powder; and cumin and cayenne. earthling has even made a sweet version by coating the chickpeas in honey or maple syrup, then in unsweetened flaked coconut, before roasting.
