Roasting the chickpeas will make them crunchy and give them more flavor. You can use as many or as little spices as you like and whatever spices you prefer. Try using cinnamon, brown sugar, and a dash of salt to make “sweet and salty” chickpeas. Roasted chickpeas make a great snack or main protein source at a meal.
1 Can Chickpeas
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp garlic powder
¼ tsp ground black pepper
1. Preheat oven to broil and prepare a 9” x 13” baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick cooking spray
Drain and rinse chickpeas and transfer into medium sized mixing bowl
Drizzle olive oil over chickpeas, add spices, and mix
Transfer onto prepared baking sheet and broil in oven for 15-20 minutes, or until crunchy and no longer soft in the middle, turning often
* Store in fridge or in freezer. The freezer is a great way to give them an added crunch!
