This roasted chickpea snack might be considered Mediterranean popcorn. Healthy and full of flavor, you should grab a handful today!



1 can of garbanzo beans drained and dried by laying on a paper towel

11 1/2 T olive oil

Seasonings of choice (I used 2t za’atar, 1/2t salt, 1/4t smoked paprika)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Drain water from can of garbanzos. Place between a sandwich of paper towels to dry.

Place in an 8×8 pan and drizzle with olive oil. Stir well.

Place in oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until they are golden and crisp. Do not burn them and don’t
undercook them either!

Toss with your favorite seasonings. (A bit like you would popcorn!)


Go ahead.
Eat them all. The entire can has less fat than one serving of potato chips.

Maybe I’ll have another bite!
