Sweet and Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

I love roasting chickpeas and this recipe is great when you have a craving for sweet, spicy and crunchy.

4 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups cooked chickpeas
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 425°. In a large, zip top bag, combine chickpeas and olive oil. Seal top and shake until all chickpeas are coated. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Add spice mixture to zip top bag, reseal and shake until all chickpeas are coated. Spread chickpeas in one layer on a large baking sheet.

Roast in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, or until crunchy and browned.

Skinny White Sangria Sparkler Recipe

A fabulous cocktail that's as beautiful to look at as it is yummy to drink. This absolutely gorgeous White Sangria is simple and made without added sugar, it is the perfect “Skinny Girl” cocktail. The White Sangria Sparkler is an entertaining show stopper guests will love!

  • 1-2 bottles of crisp white wine, I used 1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc and 1 bottle of sparkling Vino Verde
  • 2 ripe local peaches, sliced
  • 1 pint raspberries
  • 2 kiwis
  • several sprigs of mint
  • Stevia (health food market)

Simply add the sliced fruit and mint to the wine and add several squirts of the Stevia to attain desired sweetness. Refrigerate at least an hour so the flavors infuse. You can also freeze half of the fruit and add right before serving so they act like ice cubes.  Recipe from Linda Wagner.
