Knowledge Nibbles

What you need:

2 cans chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
2 TBsp olive oil
Seasons of your choice

How to make them:

Preheat oven to 375˚F.
Prepare the beans for roasting by draining and rinsing them, then let them dry on a fowl until most of the excess moisture is absorbed.
Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 45-60 minutes or until the beans are crunchy throughout (just test one, if they are still soft on the inside and there's no crunch, keep baking).
Immediately (while beans are still hot), toss with olive oil and seasonings.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
* They are best the first day, but can be kept in an airtight container for up to 4 days *

A little about Erudite...

DEFINITION[Pronounced: Air-yoo-dyte] Characterized by great knowledge; learned or scholarly. The word "erudite" focuses on knowledge rather than intelligence-- intelligence being something you're born with, and can't necessarily control, and knowledge being something that you acquire.  
HISTORYErudite was formed by those who blamed human ignorance for the faults of society. They formed Erudite as a way of eliminating ignorance and darkness from human minds.
TRAITSChat about books and newspapers; in constant pursuit of knowledge. Curiosity, which drives them to seek knowledge. The faction produces most of the city's librarians, doctors, scientists, & teachers. They keep records of the city & the factions. Most technological advances are due to Erudite, including all of the simulation serums.
PHYSICAL TRAITS: Most members wear glasses no matter how perfect their vision is, to give the appearance of intelligence. Each member must wear at least one piece of blue clothing as they believe it a calming colour that helps stimulate the brain. 
ERUDITE INITIATION: Mostly unknown, but they most likely study, and take rigorous tests. It is also stated by Therese that there is an initiation intelligence test that, if not passed, results in one becoming factionless. Each of the initiates selects and is trained in a certain subject of expertise in Erudite.  
NICKNAME: 'Know it all's'. 
RELATIONS: On good terms with Amity and Dauntless; on neutral terms with Candor; harbours a fierce grudge against Abnegation who form the government, a power they seek. They believe them to not be as selfless as they claim. 
CURRENT LEADER: (Chosen by IQ) Jeanine Matthews.
