Honey Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas

Eschew chestnuts this Christmas and chew on sweet roasted chickpeas instead. After a drain and rinse to remove the starch from the chickpeas, they take in the flavor honey and cinnamon easily as they bake for 30 minutes. Break your chickpeas from the normal hummus routine and let their versatility shine!


Alton Brown’s Christmas Soup

The combination of kielbasa, garlic, and kidney beans form a hearty base to this delicious soup best eaten while watching your favorite Christmas movie.
