serve as a side dish or with drinks

from Nigel Slater, Observer mag, Sept 2002

two tins of chickpeas
4 tbsps olive oil
4 large cloves finely-crushed garlic
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
freshly-ground black pepper

drain, rinse and dry chickpeas.  Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet, stir the oil with the garlic and drizzle over the peas.  Roast them in a preheated oven, 230° C, for 15 mins.  Remove from oven, dry on paper towels, then toss in the mixed cumin, chilli, salt and black pepper.
