Roasted Chickpeas

Most recipes for roasted chickpeas use lots of oil, this one doesn’t! They come out crispy and absolutely delicious. Great on salads or as a snack.


  • 500g chickpeas
  • Water
  • Seasoning, such as:
    • Smoked paprika & cumin
    • Chili powder
    • Madras curry or other curry
    • Mexican grill spice
    • Turmeric

Roasted Chickpeas PicDirections:

  1. Soak chickpeas overnight or for several hours in enough water for them to be covered and double in size
  2. Preheat oven to 200˚C*
  3. Lay out chickpeas in pan, sprinkle on the seasoning and place in oven
  4. Check after 20 minutes and shake them a bit
  5. Check for crispiness after 40 minutes and remove when ready

*For extra crispy chickpeas, heat on 150-175˚C for one hour, then turn down the heat to 100˚C (or just turn off the oven) and leave in for a bit longer.
