Good to hear that you are home after major surgery.

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas Recipe

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
dash of coarse salt
2 cans (15.5 ounces each) low sodium chickpeas, rinsed, drained, and patted dry
1 tablespoon cumin seed

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Pour olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet and place in oven until oil is hot, 3 minutes.
2. In a medium bowl, combine chickpeas, cayenne pepper, and cumin seed. Season with salt and toss to combine.
3. Place chickpea mixture on hot baking sheet and spread in a single layer.
4. Bake until chickpeas are crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.
5. With a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels and let cool slightly. Serve warm.

Other popular ways to flavour roasted chickpeas is a chipotle blend (cumin, chili powder, lime juice), curry seasoning, or—to keep things simple—just the classic salt and pepper. You can also do sweet variations, such as cinnamon and sugar chickpeas, or pumpkin pie-spiced roasted chickpeas.
