This is a healthy, protein-packed snack that can be served at any gathering, informal and formal alike. The flavor combinations are endless, but here I present a Cajun-style mix. Feel free to add your own flavor! —anotherfoodieblogger
Test Kitchen Notes
WHO: Anotherfoodieblogger is a self-professed "geeky software business analyst" by day, cook by night.
WHAT: A bright chickpea snack for when you're on the go.
HOW: Toss chickpeas in a medley of spices like paprika and cayenne with Parmesan, olive oil, and lime juice, then bake until golden-brown.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Bright and flavorful, these chickpeas make for the perfect work snack that can be made the night before (or morning-of—they're that easy!). Plus, they're the perfect nut-alternative for those with allergies. —The Editors
