Roasted Garbanzo Beans with Cajun Spice - Blue Monday

This is one of our favorite fireplace and football snacks. There are exactly 4 ingredients in this recipe. It really doesn't get any easier than this. BUT. I'm currently experimenting with dried garbanzo beans that are soaked in water for 24 hours before proceeding with the recipe. Please stay tuned! I'm sure, that given enough time, I can complicate this recipe for you. Till then, here's the bare bones version using canned garbanzo beans.

Roasted Garbanzo Beans with Cajun Spice


2 cups canned garbanzo beans, rinsed, drained and patted dry

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 teaspoon commercially prepared Cajun Spice

1/2 teaspoon golden brown sugar

Coarse salt to taste


1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a no-stick baking sheet with no-stick spray and set aside.

2) Toss garbanzo beans with Cajun Spice and brown sugar in a small bowl. Mix well.

3) Place beans in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until crisp and golden. Sprinkle with coarse salt to taste. Allow to cool before serving. Yield: 2 cups.
