    Spiced Chickpea "Nuts"

    When roasted in a hot oven, chickpeas become super crunchy. They’re a great low-fat substitute for nuts when salty cravings hit.


    • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt


    Step 1
    Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 450°F.
    Step 2
    Blot chickpeas dry and toss in a bowl with oil, cumin, marjoram, allspice and salt. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring once or twice, until browned and crunchy, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 15 minutes.
