I love trying new recipes with the fireman. It's fun and something we can do together. And he's crazy when he cooks, just so you know...
This one involves beans, baked until they're crispy and crunchy and then seasoned with whatever you want.
What is it with me and garbanzo beans lately? First, I make a Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake, which by the way, I had NO idea would be so popular! Now I want to do more fun, awesome things with beans. Like, roast them!
This is half the batch. Lightly drizzle with oil, I totally wrote sprinkle with oil, then deleted it. You can't sprinkle oil. Geez. I write weird things like that all the time. Good thing I have the sense to delete them...
Then, sprinkle with whatever seasoning you like! This is especially fun cause kids can season their own, and kids LOVE to personalize their meals/snacks.
Salty Sweet Version (mine, duh)
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar
few dashes of chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
dashes of salt
1/2 tsp popcorn cheese powder
You could season and them bake if you'd prefer it, I don't know that it'd make much of a difference, except sugars would burn, but some of the spices might be more flavorful if you do.
These go really quickly! I loved that you could just pop a few in your mouth as you go. What am I saying? I ate my half-batch within minutes. They're tasty!
