Roasted Chickpeas Recipe and Win a Copy of Vegan Beans Book

I made this crunchy roasted chickpeas with 1 container of canned chickpeas. First drain, rinse and remove the moisture of the chickpeas with a paper towel. Add chillie powder, cumin, salt and 2 tbsp olive oil to the chickpeas. Spread the coated chickpeas on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake until crispy on the middle rack of the oven for about 40 minutes in a 400F oven. Check on the chickpeas to make sure it does not burn.
