We like these as a snack. I don't cook as long as the recipe says so the chickpeas aren't as hard to chew.
This was tasteless and I will never make again - sorry.
I thought this was a great recipe. I stirred every 5- 10 mins to keep from burning. Stirred every 10 in the beginning and every 5-7 toward the end. I stirred every time I would start to get a strong smell of spices. The house smelled heavenly! I tweaked the spices just a touch. I used more cinnamon and reduced the cumin and allspice, using 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 tsp cumin, 3/4 allspice, 1 tsp salt, and the pepper. I thought the allspice and cumin might be too over powering, but they weren't. I may try the original measurements of the spices next time. I will definitely make these again. They make a great snack and would be great on salad of vegetables.
I really liked this recipe! I'll probably tweak the ingredients just a little to come up with a flavor I love.I didn't have the same problem with the burning or smell in my house. I turned/rolled them around often, about every 6-7 minutes so they wouldn't burn. I only made 1/2 recipe, so it took about 40 minutes.
I'm not sure if mine burned or not but the taste is horrible! I agree, waste of ingredients.
BEWARE!! the 400 degree temp CANNOT be right. My house smells like burned chickpeas as I type this! and they were only in there about 30 mins at 395. Might be good if they didn't burn to a crisp. My whole kitchen is full of stinky smoke. arrrrgh! waste of ingredients.
