Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

On a parchment-lined baking tray spread the chickpeas out in an even layer. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until brown and crunchy.
While the chickpeas are cooking, prepare the tortillas. Lightly grease a baking tray, then spray the tortillas with
Nonstick Cooking Spray (as needed)
or brush both sides of the
6-Inch Corn Tortillas (6)

Build the tostadas with a layer of spiced cottage cheese and top with the roasted chickpeas. Garnish with
