When you need a snack that is low in fat and calories, yet will leave you full and satisfied, you should try reaching for roasted chickpeas. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are full of fiber and protein, which is perfect for your body. When they spend a bit of time in the oven, the crunchy character of the beans will mimic that same bite you might get from chips or salted nuts. The best part is that roasted chickpeas are actually a healthy snacking option. Our version features garam masala, an Indian spice mix, but you can flavor them however you like. They are great with cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, curry powder or just salt and pepper–whatever your favorite spice combination may be. The complete recipe for Garam Masala Roasted Chickpeas can be found on The Duo Dishes.
