Falafel Spiced Roasted Chickpea Tacos


I had been wanting to make my falafel but to bust out the food processor, form little patties, and all that, just hasn't been something I've had time for. So I had this brilliant idea to take all those spices and flavors and just coat the chickpeas in them, then roast them. I do love roasted chickpeas. I substitute onion for onion powder, fresh garlic with garlic powder that way I wouldn't have to worry about it burning in the oven and the flavors would be all combined. It worked like a charm! I got my falafely goodness without the work.

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
