Spiced Chickpeas

1 15 ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 T olive oil (or a neutral oil of your choice)

A mixture of cumin, sweet paprika, turmeric, cayenne, Kosher salt and pepper  - to taste

In a large skillet, warm the tablespoon of olive oil for 30 seconds, then add a sprinkle of each spice to your taste. Lightly toast the spices for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add the drained chickpeas and warm through. Easy and yum!

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees

Rinse, pat dry (with a paper or kitchen towel) and top and tail your veggies and halve or cut in smaller, uniform pieces.
