Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) Roasted with Tamari and Sea Salt
Chickpeas roasted with Tamari and Sea Salt are about as good as it gets for a snack that’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and South Beach Diet friendly!
I used Tamari, a smooth tasting natural soy sauce which comes in several types. It can be wheat free, although most 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 that type of Tamari.
You can certainly use regular sea salt too, or 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 after the recipe for those links.
