Put a lid on the baking dish...?
Are you sure they're not supposed to be pre-soaked? I like chickpeas too, but I've never heard of a recipe for pop-peas (like popcorn, get it? )
poppies??? ooohh nevamind LO sound yummy tho
They were canned ones, per the recipe. I thought they were going to turn out crunchy like those wasabi peas.
I was excited cause I never even attempt to cook. This was why.
So they were pre-soaked, then. What I'd probably do is cover them for part of the cooking time, then uncover them and let them get crunchy at the end.
I remember a recipe for baked, sliced potatoes that gave me similar problems. You were supposed to peel, slice, oil, season and bake them uncovered. Sounded delicious, but when I followed directions, they turned out like hockey pucks. Never did figure out what was doing wrong. *shrug*
If they were canned they were also pre-cooked.
In Greece, crunchy seasoned chickpeas are a common snack, but I've never them. I wonder if baking them at a much lower temp would work...
Yeah.If the end goal is crunchy but not popped, that should work.
I got it out of Food Network magazine and it was a very abbreviated recipe. It was in one little block of a calendar.
I searched for more recipes and most state a lower baking temp, 350 for 45 mins. Plus they say to drain and rinse them and pat them dry with paper towel, toss them with the oil and seasoning after they're done baking.
And it lists more flavor recipes!
