Starving Theatre Artist Option 2

I'm expanding my diet!

Roasted Chickpeas

2 cans cooked chickpeas
4 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

options- curry powder, basil, garlic, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, ginger... The possibilities are endless. You could have a different chickpea flavor every night (believe me, I've been there).

-Preheat oven to 425. Spread foil on a baking sheet.
-Dry chickpeas with a paper towel to dry them. Mix with olive oil and whatever spices you want in a bowl. Spread on the baking sheet.
-Bake for 30-40 mins until brown and crunchy. Keep an eye on them in the last 10 mins to avoid burning.

I'm currently listening to the original Broadway cast recording of ONCE, based on the movie that I haven't seen yet. It's on NPR first listen.
Already crying.
I'm going to try to see the show next week.

Come on, there's a musical theatre geek in all of us.


  1. You can get them in the bulk section at Fred Meyer and maybe Safeway... makes the dollar stretch a little more than paying for water! I tend to think they taste a little better too.

  2. I would, but Trader Joes doesn't have a bulk foods section yet.
