Reading books for leisure has become non existent for me, back in December I read Steve Jobs half way through and that was it. Yesterday, finally I was able to get “The-Best-of-Me” by Nicholas Sparks and really looking forward to it. You know reading book is therapeutic; for once I can drop down all my stress and be in somebody else’s world for a while!
…But I hate how quickly this therapeutic action turns into craziness, once I start to read or watch tv series, I cannot stop until the end and in the meantime I endlessly snack..and that happened this afternoon so I had to talk myself into taking a break and making one of my favorite snack-roasted curried chickpeas..snack does not get any easier, cheaper & of course healthier than that!!
1 can of garbanzo/chickpeas, drained, rinsed
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tsp garlic powder
olive olive to drizzle & coat
salt to taste
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the mixture, bake for 45-50 minutes turning once. Keep an eye out to check until it comes crunchy and it does not burn
You can flavor the chickpeas with any spice blend, sweet, savory, its your call
And guess what? right after the snack was ready, I was back to reading and now it feels like my eye balls are ready to pop out of my head any second. Book reading is a pleasure and I do not want to ruin this experience, I need help!!
