There is nothing like a big bowl of buttery salty popcorn...unless you are like me, and carb sensitive and it gives you a headache. I found the perfect substitute on Dr. Oz's website. Instead of using salt and butter, this snack derives its flavor from spices and olive oil. It isn't exactly the same but you get the same crunch payoff:-) Here is how you do it:
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees:
Then, rinse the chickpeas and spread them on a baking pan:
Add a teaspoon each of garlic powder, cumin and oregano and drizzle with olive oil:
Put it all in the oven:
Bake for 50 minutes:
And here is the recipe and the stats:
1 (15 oz) can chick peas, drained
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. Mix chickpeas with all ingredients. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes or a bit longer until they’re extra crispy.
