Roasted Chickpeas

This is my all-time favourite snack.  It’s great up at the cottage, on Superbowl Sunday, or when you have less-healthy friends over and you need something delicious that aren’t chips, and doesn’t scream healthy!

Any seasoning you’d like would work here.  This recipe is the ‘basic’ version — I pump up the spicy, or try out new hot sauces every time I make these.  And shhhh, don’t tell anyone they’re good for you!

Roasted Chickpeas

  • 1 large can (796mL) chickpeas (about 3 1/2 c. if you’re cooking dried from scratch), drained
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. red chili flakes
  • 5 dashes Tabasco
  • 2 dashes garlic salt or salt (to taste)

Preheat oven to 450F.

In a large bowl, coat chickpeas with remaining ingredients.  Place in a single layer onto a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.

Bake at 450F for 30-35 minutes, until chickpeas are crunchy and slightly browned.  Let cool and enjoy!

    Linz! I have dried chickpeas. Do I soak them or just use them dry?
    I soaked mine, then misread the instructions as 45 mins and burned 1/2, but the unburned ones are DELICIOUS. xoxoxox

    I am such a huge fan of chickpeas that I find it hard to believe I never think of roasting them! Thanks for reminding me that I need to go do just that 🙂

    Francesca —
    I would definitely soak them first, probably overnight. 🙂

    Glad you love the un-burny. Now you have to try again! xo
