Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted Chickpeas

A great snack, and easy to make for everyone in the family.  Always great to have in the kitchen cabinet a can of   Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans.  The raw Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans soak them in cold water overnight, if the Chickpeas water is cloudy, change it with fresh water.  When you use the can of Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans, make sure you use the paper towel to remove the excess moisture, same with the raw ones.
