One of my birthday gifts this year, from my very thoughtful daughter, was a vegan lunchbox cookbook. Not sure what the message was, but I really did need some new ideas.
Yesterday we broke out the book and made a quick snack to add to the lunch boxes this week.
These are super fast and easy and very delicious. We sampled a few and later I caught my daughter several times up at the counter sneaking more. She said “Mama I just can’t stop eating them. Can you hide them from me so I have some to take to school?” My sentiments exactly, I was thinking we should at least double the recipe next time.
1 15oz. can Garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste)
1 1/2 tsp. nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp. canola oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl toss the beans with the salt, yeast and oil. Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Roast for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden and crispy. Once cooled, store in an airtight container.
