Inspired from a recipe for cumin and yeast roasted chickpeas from an issue of Food & Wine, these roasted chickpeas using caned chickpeas are fast and simple to make.
Packed with protein, zinc, and folate, these crunchy and delicious roasted chickpeas are not only healthy but seriously addictive.

Best eaten warm but can be stored in an air-tight container, this amazing snack will be gone fast. Make extra.
