1 can (15-ounce) chickpeas drained and rinsed 
½ tablespoon hot pepper sesame oil
½ teaspoon wasabi powder
Sea Salt

1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
2. Drain and rinse chickpeas in a colander. Pat dry to remove any excess water.
3. Put chickpeas in a single layer onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Dry roast chickpeas for one hour. Be sure to give the baking sheet a shake every 15 minutes to avoiding burning.

5. Return to the foil-lined baking sheet and bake for another 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
