|I'm hoping you are fully appreciating the fact I reigned in my voracious hunger for the 15 seconds it took to take a medium-par photo...|
Then a problem happened - enter barbeque chip craving.
Then something divine happened - my teensy little brain wheels started churning.
Then, a near miracle took place - I decided to, and did, make barbeque fried chickpeas. And by that I mean I broiled those suckers til they crunched like none other. We all know I don't have a fryer.
Then I ate 3 cups of them and the world was right and filled with decency again.
You should too.
Chickpea BBQ Poppers
1 15 ounce rinsed and drained can of chickpeas aka garbanzo beans aka hummus makers aka yum in a can
1 tbspn vegetable oil (or any oil your heart desires)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp hot paprika
combine all ingredients, put on foil-lined baking sheet, and bake at 450 degrees for 45-50 minutes
|rinse off that nasty looking/smelling goop that comes with the chickpeas and drain|
|In a small bowl, give those chickpeas an nice oil bath. They deserve it after spending lord knows how long with the goop|
|Put all your spices in the bowl and mix together. Then place on a foil lined baking sheet and plop in a 450 degree oven for 45-50 minutes.|
|Take them out of the oven and plop them in a little ramekin. This way, you can pretend that you might be sharing.|
Problem - I now have a chickpea popper craving...
