Success!! Roasted Garbanzos

After seeing many tweets about roasted garbanzo beans, I decided to pick up a can and try my hand at it! I love trying new things, especially if it is quick and easy!

So here we go...

I preheated the oven to 350 degrees.

First of all, I used canned garbanzo beans. I drained them, and set them aside. I sprayed the pan with olive oil and tossed in the beans. I shook them around a bit to cover them in olive oil.
I chose to use Cayenne Pepper, Garlic Powder and Mrs. Dash for my seasoning but I would think you could use just about whatever you wanted! Shake the beans around a bit to distribute the seasoning. (Don't be afraid to use lots of seasoning! I wish I had added much more to mine!)

Put them in the oven and shake the pan every 15 minutes or so for about 40 minutes. While your waiting, you could enjoy a nice cup of Peach Ginger White Tea that an awesome friend who just happens to be one of the newest Mamavation Moms sent ya! ;)

And when they're done, let them cool a bit and enjoy! If you have extra, store them in a plastic bowl with a lid! Mmmm, yummy!

You can also make these on the stove top if you are in a hurry. So glad you liked them. The seasoning you used sounds really good. I'll have to go to town and buy some.
