One of our favourite ways to enjoy chickpeas are to roast them and eat them as a snack! They become crunchy and you can add a variety of spices!
It is a very simple recipe, only taking 5 minutes to prepare and 35 minutes to roast!
An easy, healthy party- or Netflix snack!
1 Can of Chickpeas
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Salt to taste
Salt & Vinegar
1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees
2. Drain chickpeas
3. Dry properly, remove shells that came loose
Quite an important step. If you do not dry the chickpeas, they do not become crispy!
You can use a drying cloth or paper towel.
Remove the shells that come loose – this also increases crispyness!
4. In bowl, toss with olive oil and salt
Use the amount of olive oil that suits your own needs! You don’t need too much to get them crispy.
Do not add the spices in this step. If spices are added too soon, they just burn and make your chickpeas bitter!
5. Spread out in oven pan lined with foil or baking paper.
The chickpeas should not lay on top of each other
6. Roast for 25min, shaking the baking pan every 10 minutes to move them around.
7. Add to the same bowl as earlier and season with your spice of choice (ideas under ingredient list)
8. Roast for another 10min
9.Spice further if needed
And that’s it!
Now you have a nutrient dense, healthy snack for all occasions!
