Roasted Chickpeas aka Roasted Garbonzo Beans

I searched FOREVER for chickpeas! I had NO idea that chickpea was another name for garbonzo beans. Every store I went to I would peruse their canned vegetable aisle in hopes of finding the chickpeas to know avail until I was at Walmart picking up ingredients for banana splits. I walked down the canned vegetable aisle and there they were, in bold white font "Chickpeas" and below it in a slightly smaller font "garbonzos." I cannot explain the feeling I had when I realized chickpeas were garbonzo beans...

I bought two cans and the next day I made my son these roasted chickpeas aka garbonzo beans.


They were super easy to make and my son really enjoyed them.

Ingredients: 

1 can chickpeas, 1 Tablespoon olive oil, seasoning of choice (we went Mrs. Dash)


Directions:

Rinse and dry the chickpeas, put them in a container (with a lid) and add olive oil close and gently shake the container to coat the chickpeas. Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet pop them in the oven at 400° for 30-40 minutes or until they are a golden color.
When they're finished roasting liberally coat with spices and enjoy them while they are still warm.
