Roasted Garlic & Mushroom Chickpeas

Chickpeas is a vegan GO TO. Every vegan has either some cans of chickpeas or some dry beans in their pantry. They are a great source of protein and they are quick and easy to make. I am always trying to find ways to spice up my chickpeas. What I love about this recipe is that it has a smokey flavor. If you are trying to find some meat replacements using liquid aminos and liquid smoke are great flavors to get your "meat kick."
