Roasted Garam Masala Chickpeas

Great for snacking or on salads, with less fat/calories than most nuts. This same process could be used with any seasoning or spice mix, for lots of variety.

2  15-oz cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
3 Tbls olive oil
2 tsp garam masala 
½ tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350°. Rinse and drain chickpeas; roll gently between kitchen towels to dry and slough off skins. Discard skins. Coat chickpeas with olive oil; spread in single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with garam masala and salt. Bake, stirring occasionally, until chickpeas are crisp (about 60 minutes) -- Keep an eye on them! The original recipe said 75 minutes, but as you can see in the picture, mine were PLENTY done and this was slightly under an hour!
