Ingredients
  • Chili Roasted Chickpeas
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp chili seasoning
  • Soy-Sesame Roasted Chickpeas
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce (gluten free certified)
  • ½ tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Maple Cashews
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Roasted Chickpeas: Drain and rinse chickpeas. Take one half of the chickpeas and place into bowl. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and 2 tsp chili seasoning. Mix until well coated and then spread onto half of a parchment lined cookie sheet. Take the other half of the chickpeas and place into a second bowl. Add 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp soy sauce and ½ tbsp agave nectar. Mix until well coated and then spread onto the empty half of the cookie sheet. Sprinkle the soy chickpeas generously with sesame seeds. Bake in the oven for 38-40 minutes, stirring the chickpeas every 10 minutes to ensure even roasting. Remove once crunchy and allow to cool.
  3. Cashews: In a bowl, mix cashews and 2 tsp maple syrup. Spread onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes, until cashews are roasted to your preference. Allow to cool.
  4. Mix cooled cashews and chickpeas together and enjoy!
Notes
We cheated and used pre-mixed chili seasoning from the bulk barn. It's really easy to make your own though, just follow this recipe.
Make sure to check on the chickpeas for the last 2-3 minutes in order to gauge if they're crispy enough. Cook to your own preference.
