Crispy Cinnamon Garbanzo Beans

yield: Makes 3 cups
active time: 5 minutes
total time: 50 minutes (plus overnight soak)
These tasty (no-allergy!) nut alternatives are great to have out around the holidays. Give them to the kids in rolled-up parchment-paper cones (as shown).

Ingredients:
* 1 cup dried garbanzo beans
* 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
* 2 tablespoons raw (or regular granulated) sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1 teaspoon salt

Preparation:
1. Soak the beans overnight in cool water. Drain and pat them dry with paper towels.

2. Preheat oven to 350°F.

3. In a bowl, toss the beans with the vegetable oil and sugar.

4. Spread them in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Roast them in the oven until crunchy and no longer soft in the centers, about 45 minutes. (Stir them a few times to prevent burning.)

5. Immediately toss the beans in a bowl with the cinnamon and salt. Cool and serve, or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

Tip: For a savory snack, try tossing the beans with salt, paprika, and freshly ground pepper instead.

Happy Holidays

  1. Isn't garbanzo a fun word to say?
