Garbanzo Bean Snack
- 4 cups cooked garbanzo beans
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash Zesty Garlic Seasoning
- 1 teaspoon Lowry’s Seasoned Pepper
Drain and dry beans. Toss with olive oil and remaining ingredients. Spread on cookie sheet and bake at 400F until beans are crunchy–about 20 minutes or so. Cool completely.
You can use canned beans for this. Since I was trying to get rid of salt, I cooked my own in the crock pot. I cooked a whole pound, used 4 cups for the recipe and put the rest in the freezer for later.
You can use whatever seasonings you like. If you enjoy a salty snack, perhaps add some salt. You could exchange taco seasoning for the other seasonings. Or maybe some Italian seasoning. The possibilities are many!
Make sure to bake the beans long enough. You want them to be really crunchy. They still taste ok if you don’t, but they get kind of mealy when they cool. The beans will shrink a lot and be nice and brown.
