Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas {Garbanzo beans}

1 (15 oz) can Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)
Olive oil
Salt to taste

Heat your oven to 400 degrees.

Drain chickpeas in a strainer and rinse with cold water. Pour them onto paper-towel lined rimmed baking sheet. Place a paper towel on the top of the peas, and pat dry. Remove paper towels and skins. Drizzle peas with olive oil and mix together using your hands. Spread out the peas, making sure they are in one layer on the baking sheet.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the beans are golden brown and crispy. Remove from oven and sprinkle with salt. Store in an air tight container.
