No-Salt Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas make an absolutely delicious snack, especially when they’re eaten straight out of the oven. Serve them as a warm appetizer in a bowl, just as you would nuts, or toss them with salads instead of croutons. They’re totally addictive, so watch out—you may find yourself eating more than just the 1/4-cup serving!
