Sure do! I like to cook my green beans this way. I call them my "french fries."

Wow! By using a slight variation of this recipe I've stumbled across something that tastes SO much like "seasoned french fries" you'll be absolutely amazed! My son has to be credited with this one. He was so eager to try out what I was baking that (of course) he was popping them into his mouth as soon as they came out of the oven, nice and warm. His first comment was "These taste just like french fries!", and by-golly, he was right. I tried the chick-peas right out of the oven with a litte reduced sugar ketchup and felt like I was eating steak-house seasoned fries. Yum!

Here's what I did to prepare these (it's all in the seasoning);

Rinsed the chick peas (I used 2 cans) and allowed them to dry, then tossed them in just enough (good) olive oil to coat them. At this point I added two generous pinches of chili powder, lightly sprinkled the chick peas with salt, and then added LOTS of McCormick's (salt-free) Garlic & Herb seasoning. I spread the peas in a single layer in a glass casserole dish and baked (uncovered) for 40 minutes at 425 degrees, stirring every 10 minutes or so.

My son and I are both addicted!

They keep well for a while, but you should probably eat them within a week.

Hi, i have been making these for a few months now and they are delicious!
with my electric oven i put the temp close to 500 and baked for about an hour (stirring every 10 minutes or so).
with my gas oven, i'm doing 425 for about 40-50 minutes and stirring every ten minutes or so.
whoever said to use montreal steak seasoning is right on! they are so delicious! i have my aunt hooked and now her friends are requesting the recipe! hahahaha
love it!

I also like to use a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkling of parmesan cheese, and some cracked black pepper. It's delicious, tastes like something I would eat even if I weren't on the SBD!

I finally tried these today, to see if they would be a good snack for my upcoming vacation. My verdict: yes and no. They are quite tasty but I will not make them often because there are a lot of calories in a small amount! (I know it is not about calories on SB but still.) I only made one can to try it out and I split that into 4 servings in baggies for my trip. I could easily see popping tooooo many of these!

I almost did dill on mine, but didn't. Thanks for posting that...now I'll know for next time!!! I looooooooooove dill!!!

I just made these using dry ranch dressing mix and garlic powder. I baked for over an hour and a half at 400 degrees (I did take them out a few times to let them sit and see if they firmed up...then I put them back in). They're still not as crunchy as I want them (I've got them sitting out right now...might put them back in). Still, they are yummy!!!

I was so psyched up to make these...i followed the directions and made 3 cans of them. They weren't good. I dont know if I made them right. I was preparing for something with the consistancy of 'corn nuts' but they were kinda hard on the outside and soft on the inside. Help! Did I not cook them long enough (i left them in for closer to an hour)

Willow,
I think you just need to keep them in the oven longer. They eventually will get all crunchy.

I had the same result. I was afraid if i cooked them any longer they'd burn. They did start turning black and I was stirring every 10 minutes. The spice mix was good....it was the bean itself that was funky, like you mentioned.

Once cooked, are they fine unrefrigerated? Or is it better to store them in fridge? Going to make them today..
