Hello! Hello!

Fun fact.  I love BBQ chips.  I actually love BBQ sauce too.

Yes.  I’m a vegetarian (well, pescatarian…) who completely loves the taste of that BBQ flavor… without all the meat of course.  Luckily my favorite Asheville BBQ restaurant has a BBQ Tempeh Sandwich on the menu.  Only in my town, folks! If I happen to find myself at a BBQ restaurant not in Asheville (which doesn’t happen often,) I’ll even order corn bread or fries with the sole purpose of having something to dip BBQ sauce in.

Chips, sugary BBQ sauce and fries are obviously things I can’t enjoy all of the time, so I decided to make a healthy swap!  My BBQ Roasted Chickpeas totally cure that craving and are completely addictive.  I dare you to stop at just one…

These BBQ Roasted Chickpeas could NOT be easier.  You just rinse and drain a can of chickpeas.  Let them dry a little and then roast them.  When they come out of the oven you top them with a healthy dose of homemade BBQ seasoning.  You most likely already  have most of this stuff in your pantry– I know I did!

The sweetness comes from a touch of coconut sugar, but you can sub brown sugar if you don’t have it or leave it out all together.

Anyway you roast it, these babies are my new favorite snack.  I’ll be enjoying BBQ all summer long.
