Crunchy TV Snack - Oven-roasted beans, peas and lentils

Sunday evening is crime scene time and of course a suitable snack is a must. I myself am absolutely not a fan of chips or pretzel sticks. I much prefer to eat a piece of chocolate, but that's usually not enough for 90 minutes. So today I tried something new. Since I currently have a lot of legumes on the kitchen shelf, I decided to roast them for the evening in front of the TV. Well, it wasn't really without further ado, because the legumes first have to soak in the water overnight. Then the beans, lentils and peas are briefly boiled, seasoned as desired and roasted in the oven. A really great snack that also convinced “man”. Now nothing stands in the way of the crime scene evening.





For a sheet

250g legumes of your choice (black beans, red beans, white beans, red lentils, brown lentils, chickpeas, green beans, pinto beans, green lentils)
3-4 tbsp olive oil
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon paprika sweet
1 pinch of cinnamon
some chili
some pepper
1 teaspoon salt


Soak the legumes in water overnight. Drain the next day and cook for about 20-30 minutes. Then drain well. Put the legumes, spices and olive oil in a bowl and mix well.

Preheat the oven to 180 ° C fan oven. Put the mixture on a baking sheet with parchment paper and distribute evenly on top. Then bake for 30-40min. Shovel around a little from time to time.
