    I found cooking time a bit too long bc some  -  18 Dec 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I’ve made these 3 times now so I’m ready to review. I suggest tripling or quadrupling the recipe to actually have a decent amount of chickpeas. They shrink while cooking! I want kids to eat them so I eliminate the pepper. I cook them for 60 total min, adding oil & salt halfway thru and stirring every 15 min. I also find they are amazing with 1.5x the salt, 1/2 the oil and when still warm! Enjoy!  -  03 Jun 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yummy, but need to be eaten quickly. Which isn’t a problem but they taste great. Not a make ahead snack .  -  27 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
