Roasted Chickpeas


Recipe Info

  • Servings : 4
  • Cook Time : 30m
  • Ready In : 30m


  • 2 x 400g cans chickpeas
  • 2 tsps olive oil
  • 1⁄2 tsp salt
  • 2-4 tsps spices or finely chopped fresh herbs, such as chilli powder, curry powder, garam masala, cumin, smoked paprika, rosemary, thyme, or other favourite spices and herbs


Step 1

Heat the oven to 200°C. Place an oven rack in the middle of the oven.

Step 2

Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Pat the chickpeas until very dry with a clean dish towel or paper towels.

Step 3

Toss the chickpeas with the olive oil and salt. Stir to make sure the chickpeas are evenly coated.

Step 4

Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 20-30 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.

Step 5

Sprinkle the spices over the chickpeas and stir to coat evenly. Serve while the chickpeas are still warm and crispy.
