Roasted Chickpeas with Parmesan and Smoked Paprika

I saw a version of this idea given as a holiday gift, and I couldn’t wait to try to create my own recipe for it. Roasted Chickpeas with Parmesan and Smoked Paprika make a wonderful snack, salad topping and even appetizer. I combined Parmesan cheese, a tiny amount of olive oil and smoked paprika, and they came out wonderful. Chickpeas, also called “garbanzo beans”, are an excellent source of fiber, folic acid and even protein. Eating them can help lower cholesterol and improve blood sugar levels, so this is a great way to add them to your diet. Each 1/4-cup serving has 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein so enjoy.
