Chickpeas with herbs and parmesan

This is less a recipe than a public service reminder that you can make a hearty and decently nutritious meal out of a $1 can of beans and some pantry staples.

Drain the can, empty chickpeas into a bowl, and microwave until warm (~1-2mins; after the first minute stir every 30s or so to prevent those pesky little explosions). While the chickpeas are still hot, stir in a couple of heaping tablespoonfuls of grated parmesan. Then add the herbs and spices: lots of parsley, Italian seasoning, and onion powder; and a touch of garlic or pepper to taste.  Finish with grated lemon zest and/or a small sprinkle of lemon juice if you believe in putting lipstick on pigs.
