Roasted Chick Peas

I love to eat…I’ll try anything once!  And I do enjoy to cook.  Sometimes I can be an amazing cook!  Sometimes not so much…

So for my first recipe to tackle, I figured I’d try something quick and easy.  So I tried this post for Roasted Chick Peas.

I should have read the directions first…all of them.  I only looked for ingredients, and cooking time.  That’s it.  I didn’t look at measurements of the ingredients…which can be kind of extremely important!

FROM THE PIN – INGREDIENTS & INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 large can chick peas (garbanzo beans)
  • 2 teaspoons old bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  •  Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Drain and rinse chick peas. Lightly rub paper towel over chick peas to remove excess skin.
  • Discard skin. In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, salt, pepper and old bay seasoning. Place chick peas in a small baking dish. Pour oil mixture over them and toss them well. Bake for 30-35  minutes or until crispy.

Should have been easy enough, right?  Well…

The 1/4 cup of Old Bay Seasoning was a TERRIBLE decision!  While cooking, the entire house began to smell of burnt Old Bay…

And the finished product…….

As you can see….OLD BAY OVERLOAD!  But they are in another Pinterest find…the container is a Mason Jar with the lid of an old Parmesan cheese topper…they really do fit!

I had hoped my first task would have been a success…but in the words of Scarlett O’Hara, “After all tomorrow is another day
