Editing Snack - Roasted Chickpeas


With wedding season in DC deeply upon us, so is the editing of all those wedding. Now, with digital editing is done in front of a computer not over a trash can like it was with film. The hours spent sitting or standing at my desk means I also need a snack to keep my energy and concentration going.

Enter…the roasted chickpea! Full of vegan protein and nutritionally dense carbohydrates, I can eat them at my desk without making a mess or getting anything on my keyboard.

Here is the recipe that I make in huge batches to keep on hand this time of year.

2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

2 T of olive oil or coconut oil

1 tsp of salt.

Toss in a bowl and throw on a baking sheet in a preheated oven (375F) for 15 min. Shake the pan and cook for an additional 5-10 min.

Yep, its that easy.
