Roasted chickpeas

Sometimes you need something to nibble on and these are really tasty. Sadly not so quick but well worth the wait.

1 tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed (or equivalent of dried peas, soaked and cooked)
curry powder (optional)
salt and pepper

Take the cooked chickpeas and toss them in the salt and pepper, curry powder (I use a teaspoonful or so) if using and oil. Place them on an oiled baking sheet and put them in the oven at about 450oF/230oC/gas mark 4. They will take 30-40 minutes to get crispy (you need to keep checking on them towards the end as there is a fine line between crispy and crunchy and burned!). When they are ready they will rattle when you shake the baking tray.

You can use various seasonings on them. Different spices, garlic salt, etc.
