    Mix cooked an well drained chickpeas in some olive oil… then mix in some cumin... cayenne pepper an salt.!!!

    Spread a single layer in a cake pan an put in the oven... set the oven at 425 an bake for 40 minutes… stirring after 20 minutes and then after 10 minutes.

    Turn the oven off... stir Chickpeas... put back in oven for at least 1 hour stirring after each 30 minutes.

    They are done when they are crunchy... an will be delicious

    ... im still workin on a best recipe.!!!
    The first pound i roasted was the big regular size chickpeas... but the next ones i bout are at least 1/3 smaller which might work beter wit diferent cookin times an temperature.!!!
    Ive tried a taco seasonin an it was good but the simple cumin... cayenne an salt is my favort so far.!!!

    I gotta admit I like them just boiled to soft with a little butter and salt OR on a salad with some cheddar cheese cubes.

    I finally mastered the fine art of making riced cauliflower in the last year, have been making it up once or twice a week. It goes really well with salmon. Do up a batch of chickpeas - a big batch like you do - and then serves them throughout the next week. Very tasty and healthy indeed!

    I use a cheap food chopper-grinder to rice the cauliflower, couple of bumps to the left button then a couple of bumps to the right button until it is all riced, then 3 minutes 45 seconds in the microwave with a tablespoon of butter. Stir a bit, let it sit covered for 10 minutes then serve.

    One of the funniest lines in Jon Stewart's book: "Indian cuisine - a tragic overestimation of chickpeas." Funny, but untrue. Chickpeas are wonderful. I've done the fried and roasted versions, with just a little salt and chili powder.
    Hummus with lots of garlic and sesame seed. Multi-bean salad. Garbanzo soup with tomato and basil. Falafel. Yay!

    I have hummus every day, with garlic and chives. Beans are fun and good for you, also cheap so we have a lot of them here.

    My chopper cost about $30 USD, worth every penny. Had a more expensive one but it was too complicated so I sold it at a garage sale and bought this one. I think its a Cuisinart.

    They're good. So's Moulinex. For single servings of creamy soup or sauce, nothing beats the baby bomb.
    I buy my appliances at the thrift store - a great $2-5 investment in something that will last 2-10 years, during which I'll have kept it out of the landfill and won't feel too badly about throwing it away when it dies.

    You don't make your own hummus do you?

    That is one thing I have never been able to make to taste better than good shop bought.

    Over time I have given up.

    Good shop bought is priced at the level of the most expensive ingredient, probably tahini. The main ingredient in my hummus is canned chick peas, which are cheap and already salted. Garlic is also cheap*. Sesame seeds come from the bulk food store and are ground up in a spice mill; I prefer lime to lemon juice**, so just nuke one for a minute and ream; the most expensive item is the olive oil and you don't need much. Sometimes I fancy it up with fresh chopped cilantro or parsley; mostly just a sprinkle of chili - not a huge fan of cumin, though I put it in refried beans.


    (* especially if you get off the quick sale rack, whenever a whole lot of them are starting to open up in the store. That just makes them easier to segment and peel and grind up, mix with olive oil and put in a jar, which you then keep on the fridge door for whenever you need a half teaspoonful for a meal, without getting your hands smelly every time.
    **buy a citrus fruit on sale; scrub skin; dry; shave zest off lemons and oranges; put whole fruit in basket of freezer to use at need)

    I buy a locally-made off-the-shelf hummus, spend a lot of kitchen time on other stuff (double batch of gingerbread cookies yesterday) . I tried making hummus myself several times, but Chuck and Dave do a very good job at it - much better than mine.

    I used to like making gingerbread for Christmas. No kids to eat it now and we can't, but I'm tempted to toss a batch in the oven, just for the smell.

    Just made a double recipe of whole wheat low sugar gingerbread cookies 2 days ago. About double the spices too, as I love the taste and smell of that combination.
