roasted chickpeas - gluten free snacks

My Beloved is thinking about going gluten free again.  To me this means I have been perusing all the new gluten free cookbooks that have come out recently (I love the library).  I got this from Cooking For Isiah.  I have to admit that I have already tried different spices and baking times.  I personally like more crunchy but my Beloved likes less.  He thinks these are fabulous snack foods.

Roasted Chickpeas

One 16 ounce can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained ( I actually use 2 cups of my home cooked ones)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon cayennne (or 1/8 teaspoon ground ancho, 1/8 teaspoon smokey paprika, 1/8 ground chipolte)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Put the oil on a baking sheet.  Spread it around and then pour the chickpeas over it.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cayenne.  Toss or stir about to cover.  Bake for 20 minutes.

Roasted yumminess.  My Beloved said these got him through the eighteen hour days he was working.  They were originally for salads.  Just a nice change to croutons if you if do not have to worry about gluten.  The ancho/paprika/chipolte option is more savory then spicy which really surprised me!
