Crispy Roasted Chickpeas
Health Highlights


3/4 cup Chickpeas, canned, drained (drained, rinsed, and dried well)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 dash Salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and place an oven rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Drain, rinse and dry the canned chickpeas. Make sure to pat the chickpeas very dry with a clean dishtowel or paper towels. They should look matte and feel dry to the touch; if you have time, leave them to air-dry for a few minutes. Remove any chickpea skins that come off while drying, but otherwise don’t worry about them.
  3. Spread the chickpeas out in an even layer on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir with your hands or a spatula to make sure the chickpeas are evenly coated.
  4. Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Stir the chickpeas or shake the pan every 10 minutes. A few chickpeas may pop, that’s normal. The chickpeas are done when golden and slightly darkened, dry and crispy on the outside, and soft in the middle.
  5. Toss the chickpeas with any spices you desire and serve while the chickpeas are still warm and crispy. They will gradually lose their crispiness as they cool, becoming addictively chewy.
