Roasted Garbanzo Beans with Cajun Spice - Blue Monday



Roasted Garbanzo Beans with Cajun Spice ...and...



My Blue Boys




From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is one of our favorite fireplace and football snacks. There are exactly 4 ingredients in this recipe. It really doesn't get any easier than this. BUT. I'm currently experimenting with dried garbanzo beans that are soaked in water for 24 hours before proceeding with the recipe. Please stay tuned! I'm sure, that given enough time, I can complicate this recipe for you. Till then, here's the bare bones version using canned garbanzo beans.

Roasted Garbanzo Beans with Cajun Spice...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
2 cups canned garbanzo beans, rinsed, drained and patted dry
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon commercially prepared Cajun Spice
1/2 teaspoon golden brown sugar
Coarse salt to taste

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a no-stick baking sheet with no-stick spray and set aside.
2) Toss garbanzo beans with oil, Cajun Spice and brown sugar in a small bowl. Mix well.
3) Place beans in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until crisp and golden. Sprinkle with coarse salt to taste. Allow to cool before serving. Yield: 2 cups.

Farmer Jo said...

I love these! Roasted garbanzos are fabulous. I think the dried, soaked and cooked ones are a little better - but the convenence of canned is worth it.

I like them with smoked sweet paprika and salt.

Maria said...

Great healthy snack!

ellen b said...

Hello Mary! Happy New Year and Happy blue Monday to you! Those boys are so cute!! I really like garbanzo beans so this recipe is calling to me!

Mary said...

Maria, I'm so glad you found my blog. I hope you'll visit often.

pigpigscorner said...

This makes a healthy snack! great flavours!

Rebecca said...

These look yummy! Just wondering...any recommendations on storage, and how long the finished beans will keep before going bad? I am looking for snacks to pack for surviving my night classes, and if I could make a batch of these on the weekends and pack them as snacks for 3-4 days, that would be awesome.

Mary said...

Rebecca, I pack these in air tight containers and have been known to store them for 8 or 9 days.

Mary said...

Happy Blue Monday! Blue is for boys :)

Penny said...

You are so blessed with all of your boys. Raising my boy was the best thing I have done in life. Happy New Year Mary. Love the Garbanzo beans and I am sure you will tweak away!

A Feast for the Eyes said...

This is so bizarre. All my life, I hated garbanzo beans. There was no way you could pay me to eat one! Suddenly, I love them! I just bought two cans of garbanzo beans-- one to make a three bean salad (my newest discovery I like)...and these look like healthy and yummy snacks!
Will you adopt me? When you publish your cookbook, I'm first in line to buy it!

PS: Sweet babes!

Jean Stockdale said...

Blessings for a glorious 2010 for you and your family. jean

This idea seems to be quite popular: I just saw it on another blog too.

I love garbanzo beans...great recipe, as always! You can use this Cajun Spice for any Cajun or Creole dishes. They can even turn your regular chicken curry in an exotic dish

Looks like tomorrow's after school snack! Can't wait to try them.

kbray06 said...

Where do you use the vegetable oil? It mentions it in ingredients but not in the recipe part.

Mary Bergfeld said...

kbray06, recipe has been changed to
include addition of oil with spice mix.
