Tamari Roasted Chickpeas

From Dreena Burton's Eat, Drink & Be Vegan. A book I've made a few things from, but should really break out for more often! The broccoli burritos have been calling me for too long.

I've made this a few times now, and I like how simple it is.
Roasted chickpeas were one of the first easy recipes I tried as a new vegan, years ago. I remember dumping Emeril's spice mixs, sea salt and oil onto them and hoping for the best.

I added a little nutritional yeast this time around, and tend to bake them for an additional 15 minutes because I like them really crispy. I used a bit of misted olive oil instead of the called for oil.

Great on their own as as snack, or over salad greens. Cheap bulk chickpeas, cheap spices, you're set.

I love roasted chickpeas. I usually cook mine a little longer too. I like 'em nice and crisp...

I've never roasted chickpeas before! Judging by the rest of the comments, this is something I really need to try soon!
