I came across oven roasted chick peas on the internet a while ago. I couldn’t wrap my mind around the process, making a crispy snack out of something I perceived as “squishy”. This weekend, the concept finally hit me. There’s a Japanese snack of crispy wasabi peas. I figured, if that’s possible, I’d give it a shot.

Opened a can of chick peas and rinsed them. Dried them on paper towels, tossed them on a pan with bacon fat. The original recipe call for  olive oil, but you know me, if I can get bacon involved … Hee hee.

Set the toaster oven for half an hour and voila!

Crispy (Toaster) Oven Roasted Chick Peas

A little sprinkle of salt after the chick peas were done. The Cat approved.

The only drawback is that they have  to be eaten fresh (like that’s a problem).

Enjoy. Eat well.
