What does that mean, exactly? Well, it means that I am making several things that have been on my "make this asap!" list, and asap turned into....never. These things include Garlic Knot Dinner Rolls, Banana 'Ice Cream', chocolate chip cookies (...because I have all necessary ingredients and am on a roll, ok?) and the thing I am most excited about: Roasted Garbanzo Beans!
I don't know if I mentioned this before, but garbanzo beans are, hands down, one of my favorite foods. I tried a recipe for roasted garbanzo beans once before, but the recipe called for dried beans soaked overnight in water, then roasting them, but that was a lot of pre-planning (which I rarely do when I cook) so I wasn't keen on making that dish over and over again. But then I found this recipe, using canned garbanzo beans (which I ALWAYS have on hand), and knew I had to try it. And it was so unbelievably simple, I can't make any excuses _not_ to share it with you. If you have a can of garbanzo beans, some olive oil, salt and spices, then you are 45 minutes away from a very tasty and addicting snack :)
Roasted Garbanzo Beans
from Steamy Kitchen
- 1 Can of Garbanzo Beans
- A drizzle of olive oil
- Spice of your choice (I used chili powder)
1. Preheat the oven to 400 deg F.
2. Empty the can of garbanzo beans into a colander and rinse them.
3. Pour the beans onto a baking sheet lined with a paper towel. With another paper towel on top, gently rub with circular motions to dry the beans and remove any skins.
