Here is an easy recipe that is sure to please your taste buds.  These roasted chickpeas pair well as a side dish for any summertime BBQ…give them a try and opt for roasted chickpeas as your side dish tonight instead of baked beans! This recipe also works wonders atop salad greens and as a ‘go-to-snack’ in a Ziploc bag for your afternoon nibble!

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. cumin

  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • Dash of Nu-Salt and pepper

  • Drain chick peas and rinse well with cold water.  Let sit for 15 minutes in a colander to drain.
  • Toss beans with olive oil and all above ingredients (except fresh oregano).
  • Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer; roast for 50 minutes or until browned.
  • Serve warm with Galaxy Vegan Parmesan Cheese and fresh oregano.
  • Enjoy!
