Typically Chinese Five-Spice is comprised of star anise, cloves, Szechuan peppercorns, fennel seed, and cinnamon. It is a bright, spicy, bold flavor with just a hint of sweetness from the anise and cinnamon.
3 cups cooked chickpeas
1/4 C tamari or soy sauce
2 T vegetable oil
4 t Chinese five-spice powder
Toss chickpeas with remaining ingredients until well coated.
Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake at 400 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes, stirring half way though if you're feeling ambitious.
