Football season is right around the corner (Thank you, Jesus). FSU kicks off in a mere 9 days & I’m so ready to cheer on my Noles. I’m also ready for some awesome football food. Nothing like great snacks to go along with great beer, pigskin & a FSU win. I’ve been told that my school spirit is “undying”. Why yes, that is very true. Garnet & gold for life, yo.
One of my favorite things to snack on during a tense football game is parmesan roasted chickpeas – simple, savory & not completely nutritionally devoid. Plus, they’re super easy to make… especially in a pinch.
Parmesan Roasted Chickpeas
- 1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans
- 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
- 1 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 & line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (easier clean up!). In a large bowl, mix together chickpeas, olive oil, salt, oregano, garlic powder & crushed red pepper. Spread evenly onto baking sheet & bake for 20 minutes. Rotate/mix/stir & continue to bake until evenly roasted & crispy. Once out of the oven, toss the chickpeas in parmesan & serve.
