TODAY at 11: Crispy ranch chickpeas

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - If you’re one of the folks that stocked up on beans near the start of the pandemic, here’s a recipe that will help you use them up.

The chickpeas can be canned or you could start from scratch by cooking dried chickpeas.

Chickpeas have a neutral flavor and can be seasoned in several different ways.

Crispy Ranch Chickpeas

  • 1 can chickpeas or dried beans

  • Dry chickpeas
  • Pour beans into a bowl
  • Drizzle or spray high smoke point oil over beans
