Roasted chickpeas with chilli and garlic

I found this low-carb recipe on Pinterest, and decided to make my own version with Asian spices and finish off the crunchy chickpea delights with a little fresh coriander on top.

FOOD FACT: CHICKPEAS

Chickpeas are a vegetarian source of protein. One cup supplies more than 25 percent of the dietary reference intake, or DRI, for protein as well as more than 40 percent of the DRI for fiber.
