Crunchy Garbanzo Bean Appetizer
- 1-12 ounce can Garbanzo Beans (drained)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt to taste
- Optional: Garlic salt or Cayenne pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Drained and blot Garbanzo beans with paper towels to dry off excess moisture. In a bowl, toss beans, olive oil, a little salt and seasoning until coated. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until toasted. Watch the last few minutes of cooking to avoid burning. Serve in a cute bowl, and if desired sprinkle a little more salt on them.
Note: Different seasonings will change the flavor. I prefer them with just salt or garlic salt. Many of my friends love them with Cayenne pepper. Whatever seasoning you use just have fun with it.
