Inspired by Stephanie’s Awesome “Pin Busting” Blog I though I’d blog about my Pinterest inspired successes AND failures.
I recently came across this pin: Roasted Sweet Chickpeas. Sounds yummy. Looks yummy. Seems easy.
Here’s the pinspiration:
It started off well. Easy enough. Toss chickpeas on cookie sheet, throw in 450 degree oven for 30 minutes. Unfortunately, a good portion of my chickpeas were completely blackened when I returned to the oven – guess I should’ve check on them more often.
The cinnamon/sugar/salt mixture is delicious, but I wish more of it would stick to the chickpeas! It’s all just chilling at the bottom of my bowl. (Sad face) Also, about 1 in every 3 chickpeas are deliciously crunchy, while the other 2 are soft and mushy.
I’m still eating them (but then again I have a serious sweet tooth and I think brown sugar and some margarine on a rice cake is a delicious treat) so I guess it wasn’t a total fail, but I’ll be doing some more research before I try making roasted chickpeas again….
My overall rating for this recipe is a “Meh”
