Garlic Spice And Everything Nice Roasted Chickpeas

Crunchy, tasty chickpeas perfect for snacking and salad topping!
It's sayonara to April, a month of infinite rain showers.
Now May is coming along hopefully with promised flowers, sunny delight (not that artificial orange stuff), Mother's Day,  my mother's birthday, and Virtual Vegan Potluck! Busy. Busy. Busyyyyyy!
For a yummy little snack that is an excellent addition to summer picnic baskets by itself or atop of crisp green lettuce and vegetables, look no further than roasted chickpeas! These little nuggets are seasoned with sweet and spicy flavor kissed by garlic flare.
If there's no popcorn or potato chips or no carrots, roasted chickpeas will rescue any munchy appetite!

Garlic Spice And Everything Nice Roasted Chickpeas Ingredients and Preparation

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees and lightly spray or apply baking sheet with parchment paper.
After draining and rinsing chickpeas, dry them off with a towel, soaking as much extra wetness as possible.
In a small bowl, combine chickpeas with olive oil, garlic powder, cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, coriander, salt, and black pepper.
Scatter them onto cookie sheet and bake for 30-45 minutes, watch in the last few minutes, making sure they're browned and not blackened!

A few burnt ones, but other than that- chickpea heaven meant to be shared!
