Roasted Chickpeas

I have seen recipes for this around the blog world for a while now.  Finally decided to give it a try.  It is weird, but oddly good.  I found myself continuing to reach for more - curious about the taste that was happening in my mouth.  I ate them straight up as a snack, but I imagine they would also be pretty tasty on a salad too.

Today is the March for Life in Washington, D.C.  In past years I have attended multiple times.  It is always encouraging to see so many people standing up for life!  Of course the media doesn't tell you that for one day the nation's capitol is swarmed with pro-lifers and you can barely move on the metro...they are silent and don't report anything on the matter.  Hopefully one day the March for Life will be a March of Thanksgiving instead and we will live to see abortion abolished.  Until then, continue to pray for all the souls of the aborted babies and for their parents who feel like abortion is a valid choice for them.

May the souls of the faithfully departed 
through the mercy of God rest in peace.  

Roasted Chickpeas

1 can cooked chickpeas (drain and rinse)
1-2 teaspoons olive oil, or olive oil spray/mist
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Place chickpeas on a paper towel and pat completely dry. Remove any loose skins.
Place on a baking sheet and mist with olive oil or oil of choice. Roll around to coat. Sprinkle with seasonings of your choice and toss well to coat. Make sure chickpeas are in a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes, toss well and flip, then bake for about 15 minute. Let cool and eat!
