Curried Roasted Chickpeas

Thank you for visiting! If you like this post I hope you will give it a tthumbs up!

These are the yummiest little things.  They are all over the internet now.  Several different versions are on allrecipes.com.  Last week when I had a snow day (makes me feel like I'm back in school!), I made these chickpeas to nibble on throughout the day - and nibble I did - all day long until they were all gone!  It's ok that I didn't save anything  for Grumpy - he doesn't like chickpeas at all!

Speaking of snow day....

This is what our driveway looked like after the plow people finally decided to stop by (even though I was outside shovelling away before when they drove right by and ignored the fact that Grumpy's truck was not in its parking place and that they could have plowed that then and there).  I actually went out three times that morning to work on the mess in our driveway.  The snowbanks are now so high that I don't think that I could toss the snow on top of them anymore myself.  I'm too short.  If you look at Grumpy's truck, you will see that I didn't get the snow off the very rooftop.  I'm just not big enough to reach that high.  So I figured, let the wind blow it off.  ha ha!
Back to the chickpeas....


I made these particular chickpeas with the Made with Love Curry Spice Blend.  I really, really love the Made with Love products.  My very favorites being the Red Pepper Spice Blend, the Jalapeno Spice Blend and the Garden Curry Spice Blend! 


These were very easy to do!  My method is below.  I hope you will try this with your favorite spice blend! 

Made with Love Country Curry Roasted Chickpeas

1-15 oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas) rinsed, drained and pat dry with paper towel
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
2 tablespoons Made with Love Country Curry Spice Blend

Mix together oil and spice blend.  Set aside and let marinate for about 30 minutes.  Place chickpeas in a mixing bowl and stir the spice blend mixture over top.  Stir to coat chickpeas with spice blend.  Place in 350 degree oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes, stirring often..  Cool and enjoy!  It is easy to eat the whole recipe yourself so you may want to make more if you plan to share!

I was not compensated in any way for mentioning Made with Love products on this blog post.  This is my opinion of the product and because I enjoy the spice blends, I want to share them with you!

I've seen these online and wondered how they were. I'll have to give them a try. Gorgeous pictures, by the way!

I was so thrilled to see your comment on my blog. I've been following your's for years, and I felt like I'd just been contacted by a celebrity! I am glad you liked it. Still trying to get into the habit of including it on my to-do list regularly.
Just wanted to say thank you again. I was starting to doubt whether my attempt at blogging was worth it, you may have just given me the motivation I needed!

We love roasted chickpeas over here - such a healthy snack. The curry is a great way to flavor them :)

We adore roasted chickpeas and these curried ones sound particularly appealing. I hope you can dig out of that snow soon!

It's not that I dont like chickpeas, but I think the name of them turn me off and I never use them. BUT, these look fabulous. I really should get over my chickpea thing!!! ;)

Lynda said...

I haven't tried roasted chickpeas yet, but have seen them all over. I'll have to look for these spices.
We have about the same amount of snow as you Shelby and we may get more tonight. I hope not.

I think it is time for winter to say goodbye already! Roasted chickpeas sound tasty, maybe I should roast some next time instead of popping kettle corn! Love the photos, so vibrant :)

My mom just told me about a story on the news recently. Apparently a man went out to get his mail and slipped at the end of the driveway.
Before he could get up, the snowplow came by and buried him in snow!
His neighbor saw his glove sticking out of the snow bank, and pulled him out alive. He had been in there for 4 hours!
Insanity.
Be careful with those snow banks!
