Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

  1. To make the spicy roasted chickpeas, preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Spread rinsed chickpeas on a clean kitchen towel and rub to dry. Toss chickpeas with olive oil, cayenne, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Spread in a single layer on rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through baking time. Cool 5 minutes.

Chickpea Spread:

  1. In a food processor, combine roasted chickpeas, mayonnaise, sun dried tomatoes, basil, lemon juice and salt + pepper.
  2. Process until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  3. *For a smoother spread or dip, you can add a little olive oil. I prefer mine with little bits and pieces of chickpeas.

For Sandwiches: layer chickpea spread and veggies over soft whole grain bread.
