Rancho Gordo Fried Garbanzo Snacks

To go with cocktail hour, or just for fun, we’ve adapted a classic Italian snack. I think this is a smart way to start a meal.

  1. In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, oregano, Stardust, and salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium­high heat. Add the chickpeas and spice mix and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, about 7 minutes. Keep cooking until most of the moisture is gone. They won't be crispy fried, more like very small russet potatoes when cooked. Drain the chickpeas on a paper towel.
  2. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Serve at room temperature.
