Chickpeas, sometimes referred to as garbanzo beans, are an incredible source of many nutrients: folic acid, fiber, iron, zinc and magnesium, to name a few. As a good source of fiber and extremely low in fat, chickpeas can also help lower cholesterol and improve blood sugar levels.
Sounds pretty incredible, right?!
Now just toss in a few seasonings and bake them and you have quite possibly the simplest, best tasting side dish or snack food!

Even better for this is to use dried chick peas. Soak them for several hours or over nite and simmer like any other died bean. The flavor is amazing, My husband and I love chick peas and we did not know about cooking dried ones till several months ago.
