Why You Should Roast Chickpeas And Add Them To Everything
Serves: 4
  • 2 (8oz) cans Chickpeas
  • 3 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 2 tsp. Jess' Spice Mix (or use whatever spices you prefer)
Jess' Spice Mix:
  • 1 tsp. Sweet Paprika
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Curry Powder
  • Dash of Cayenne (add +/- to your heat preference)
  • Quick shake of Garlic Powder (about 1 tsp.)
  1. Directions:
  2. Preheat oven to 400F.
  3. Pour 2 cans of Chickpeas in a strainer and rinse with cold, running water.
  4. IMPORTANT: Dry the chickpeas. This allows them to become crisp in the oven and not soggy. Simply drain the chickpeas in the strainer and then pour onto a clean dish towel (or a stack of paper towels). Pat dry and discard any skins that come off while drying.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, mix the Chickpeas with Olive Oil & Salt.
  6. Spread evenly onto a baking sheet and roast for 25-40 minutes (depending on how crunchy you prefer), making sure to stir the Chickpeas every 10 minutes or so.
  7. Assemble Spice Mix during baking time - simply add all ingredients to a small dish and mix together. Set aside.
  8. Once finished cooking, toss Chickpeas in a large mixing bowl with 2 tsp. Spice Mix.
  9. Serve immediately. If you have leftovers, store in an airtight container after they have fully cooled for up to 3 days.
