SIMPLE ROASTED CHICKPEAS

chickpeas Seriously, the entire point of simple is to keep it short and easy. Sometimes we don’t even want to chop an onion, right? If you like chickpeas or hummus, you may love this as your new favorite snack. Add it to salads. Eat it whenever you want really. Who cares? 1/2 a cup in a snack baggy to go is perfecto! This is what it looks like in the bowl. I added Rosemary because I love Rosemary, you can add whatever you want.

FIVE STEPS: PROMISE
1. Set your oven to 400degrees
2. Drain a can or two of chickpeas and pat it dry with a paper towel
3. Toss it with EVOO ( I prefer truffle oil) parmeson, salt and pepper
4. Roast if for 30 – 40 minutes and it crisps up..
5. Yum and Done!

Simple Health Scoop:

Fiber controls blood sugar and helps with digestion. The  protein and magnesium for energy. Garbanzo beans contain phytochemicals which are proven to protect against bone loss and hot flashes!

Too bad I’m the only one in the house who eats this. But you know what. Its okay to only take care of yourself and just you alone:) The kids will come around eventually and hop on board to good health as long as you keep showing them how important it is to you!

What do you think?
