Roasted Chick Peas

Gawd I love these. I only make them in the summer and am never sure why I don't ever make more at one sitting? Because Scott and I usually eat them all quite quickly? Possibly...

Roast Chick Peas

1 can chick peas rinsed and drained and drained on paper towels
1 T olive oil
1-2 roasted garlic bulbs (I roasted a bunch this morning for various recipes)
salt
chili powder

In a ceramic pie plate combine oil, garlic and spices. Mush up the garlic a lot so it will be evenly spread. Add chick peas. Roast at 350 for 1+ hours. Usually when the hour is up I just leave these in the hot oven for another hour or two.

I should say this makes about 1 cup of the finished product.

delicious. Perfect with a drink about 4 on a Sunday afternoon. Hmmmm... guess what I'm doing RIGHT NOW?!

Enjoy!

Oh, these sound great. I too love roasted chickpeas. But never thought of putting the roasted garlic with them. Nice!

Wow Lisa - I can't believe you have never had these. I will definitely spice them up a bit more next time. But so perfect with a drink on a hot summer night.

I absolutley swear that those roast tomatoes in garlic were what my 4yo son took for snack on his first day of kindergarten. He wanted to add a decanter of Shiraz and a loaf of Calabrese bread, but I told him some people have a gluten allergy, so no bread!

His tastes are so adult! Thankfully his teacher loves the smell of garlic - he is INFUSED with it.

My favorite school lunch was peanut butter and kiwi jam on an english muffin. Shortly after that - we switched my son to hot lunch.
