  1. Wash hands with warm, soapy water.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a rimmed cookie sheet with cooking spray. [You can add a layer of tinfoil to prevent sticking.]
  3. Drain chickpeas in a strainer and rinse well. Shake to remove excess water.
  4. Pour chickpeas onto sheet and spread into a single layer. Use a paper towel to gently press the beans to remove water and bean skins. Discard the skins.
  5. Sprinkle desired seasonings over beans. Shake the pan to distribute seasoning and spread beans into one layer.
  6. Bake at 350°F for 25-45 minutes, until beans are brown and crispy. Gently shake the cookie sheet every 15-20 minutes to prevent burning.
  7. Serve warm. Store in a container with a tight fitting lid or a sealable plastic bag.
