I tried to get into the whole roasted chickpea thing via South Beach, but I was never happy with the texture. They were never crunchy enough, just getting crumbly, brittle and chewy. Not exactly satisfying. However, I trust the good people over at, so I'm willing to give this another go. Especially since it sounds like so many people were into this snack - maybe I just did it wrong?

A drizzle of olive oil, a shit ton of garlic powder, some Kosher salt (perhaps less than I used. . . ) and some dried rosemary made for a tasty treat. But I still can't figure out why some of the peas are crispy fantastic, and some are still a bit chewy. No mind - they're good.
