This recipe has kind of made the rounds on the internet but I hadn’t gotten a chance to try it until this week. I followed Steamy Kitchen’s version because she’s never steered me wrong.
- One can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans
- Olive oil — about 2 Tbsp, but you’re drizzling it on so that’s approximate
- Salt and cinnamon (or whatever spices sound good to you; see below)
- Drain the beans and let them sit on a paper towel lined cookie sheet to dry while your oven preheats to 400F
- Discard the paper towels, then drizzle on olive oil, shaking the beans around so they’re well coated
- Sprinkle with salt (I find they needed a pretty good amount), then roast in the oven until they’re crunchy — around 40-45 minutes
- Remove the tray from the oven and shake on whatever spices you chose; I used cinnamon, but I hear cajun spices are good too
Once they’re cool enough to handle, go crazy! I like them warm or cooled; store at room temp.
GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! 🙂
I get a lot of my recipes off the internet, AND my kids help me in the kitchen; this makes my iPad and my Pong case a perfect kitchen setup for me. I actually approached Pong myself about this giveaway because I’m such a fan of their products; I’ve been using one of their iPhone cases forever. They explain the features of this case better than I could (can you say decreased radiation, increased singnal?) so be sure to check out the info about it.
Because of their awesomeness, Pong sent an iPad case for me, and they’re giving one to one of you! All you have to do is comment here before Sunday July 15 at midnight central time and tell me: what’s your favorite source for recipes? I’ll select a winner via random.org, and Pong will send the iPad case directly to you; you’ll just need to let me know if you want the Wi-Fi only or the Wi-Fi + 4G Case.
We have a winner!
Comment #2 is from Nashville’s own Erin of Erin’s Food Files. Congrats! Just email me your address and what kind of iPad you have and Pong will have your new case on the way!
I’m pretty addicted to food blogs and enjoy each and every one in my reader. They are my main go-to source for recipes!
What an awesome case! I would love to win. I know this sounds lame, but my own blog is my favorite source for recipes. I can’t begin to tell you how many “old favorites” we’ve made from my blog while I’ve been home on leave.
I’ve really enjoyed recipes from “When The Dinner Bell Rings” http://whenthedinnerbellrings.blogspot.com/
1. i hope to try these! i was a little worried because of my total picky eater, beans squish – then pop phobia…but then you said “crunchy”! yay!
2. i get a lot of my total decadent recipes from picky palate http://www.picky-palate.com and quite a few “regular” recipes from skinny tastehttp://www.skinnytaste.com but i have to say…a lot of my favorites came from you!
I love going to different blogs. I love pioneer woman.
my favorite source for recipes are old cookbooks… the kind of semi-homemade ones that you would buy at a school fundraiser or something and that include everyone’s family’s tried and true recipes.
I usually use blogs or http://www.allrecipes.com
I look at the recipes I’ve starred in my reader. Or I look at websites such as food network, Williams Sonoma or food and wine.
I am a fan of several recipes on Self.com (http://www.self.com/fooddiet) as well as EatingWell.com (http://www.eatingwell.com/). But to help me keep my favorites organized, I use tastebook.com.
Food Blogs and Taste of Home Cookbooks
I really love bloggers and all recipes.com
Definately food blogs! I used to subscribe to several food magazines, but I find recipes from food blogs to be more innovative and reliable.
My wife was the early adopter with food blogs and using her iPad while cooking, while I stuck to my cookbook for gilling. That started to change recently, when I have started to use the internet more for new recipe ideas. I find the most interesting ideas usually on food blogs, although I find the user reviews helpful on some of the big recipe sites.
I get most of my recipes of the internet.
I enjoy recipes that my wife finds off cooking blogs.
