Chickpeas Roasted with Tamari
Chickpeas roasted with Tamari are a tasty idea for a snack that’s vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free!
Here’s another version of roasted chickpeas I tried, just as good as the Crispy Roasted Chickpeas with Moroccan Spices I made about a month ago. Chickpeas with soy sauce isn’t something I’ve ever thought of combining before, but they really did taste great together in these Chickpeas Roasted with Tamari.
I used Tamari, a smooth tasting natural soy sauce which comes in several types. It can be wheat free, although some of the Tamari sold in the U.S. contains wheat. If you have the wheat-free kind, use a bit less because it’s more concentrated, and if you need gluten-free be sure to look for Gluten-Free Tamari (affiliate link).
You may be thinking that sea salt combined with soy sauce is overkill on the sodium, but I couldn’t resist adding just bit of sea salt to the chickpeas. You can certainly leave out the salt altogether and just use the soy sauce. Since I posted the first recipe for roasted chickpeas, I’ve discovered lots of other bloggers knew about roasted chickpeas before I did, so be sure to check out those links.
