Hummus and Roasted Chickpeas- It's a Chickpea Love Fest!

My hummus recipe is super simple, and it really can vary -- mainly if I'm missing something and don't want to run to the store.  Some may denounce my hummus because it doesn't contain tahini, but I decided to drop the tahini awhile ago.  It's an extra (expensive) ingredient, plus one of my daughter's good friends has a sesame allergy, so I like to have hummus she can eat, too.

Overnight, soak 1-2 bags 365 Organic dried chickpeas in water and a dash of baking powder.  Make sure the water is several inches over the chickpeas since they will expand.

In the morning, I plug in the crockpot and cook for 2-3 hours.  Drain and rinse. (You can also soak them before you leave for work and then plug them in right when you get home).

I then separate the chickpeas into two bowls equally.  Half will be made into hummus, half will become roasted chickpeas.
