Klem decided to make a tasty treat tonight to have while we watched survivor. He was bored & thought cooking might give him something to do - wish he was bored more often!

We had been nibbling on chickpeas for dinner so I suggested seasoning them & toasting them in the oven. We found this tasty recipe...courtesy of Martha and got right to work.

Drain, rinse, and pat-dry a 19-ounce can of chickpeas. Toss them in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, a pinch of ground pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of your favorite dried herb or spice (we used curryand cumin). Arrange them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, and cook at 300 degrees, stirring occasionally until they have browned and begin to crisp, about 50 minutes. Serve at room temperature.
