I'm excited about blogging again and do you know why? Because I just made something to share. Garbanzo beans, roasted in my Easy Bake Oven, with olive oil, Hungarian Paprika and Kosher salt. Oh my goodness, these are so flippin' good, that I got excited to write an evening post.
And show you the pictures.
Meanwhile, if you read my last post you know I'm on Frump Patrol today. And it has served me well because I feel relaxed. An even though I only did laundry, bills, couponing, bake and make dough, I still feel productive. Keep in mind, for me, that's a light day and I did it all in my ugly old robe, ratty pink slippers, with the ugliest hair you ever did see.
But I don't care. Know why? Because I feel refreshed. Plus, tomorrow when I shower and get dressed, I'm gonna look like a beauty queen by comparison.
Anyway, below is the picture, along with method and ingredients. I cannot wait to make these again. This is one fun treat and, it's enough to put me off salty crispy crappy snacks, for good.
And by the way, Frump Day rules.
I drained a can of beans, removed the skins (though I might keep them on next go), and patted them dry on a bake sheet. Then I added a bit of olive oil (not virgin), and some Hungarian paprika and Kosher salt. Gave them a mix and in a fan oven at 350F/180C. Keep in mind I have a teeny tiny counter fan oven. So adjust as needed.
During their bake, I tasted them several times, taking care not to burn them. When they hit the crunch I wanted, I pulled them out and added, to taste, Kosher salt and a whisper of good strong cayenne pepper. Cooled them on a big clean plate and that was that.
Next, I want to do a cinnamon sugar crunch and maybe down the line a chocolate or salted caramel.
The combinations are endless.
