Oven Roasted Chickpeas

I’ve seen this snack pop up on quite a few blogs recently. Hubby and I love chickpeas, so snacking on them sounded delicious. Since first making these, I’ve made them two more times. I love playing with the flavors used to spice them.

These would be a great addition to your Superbowl spread! Speaking of which, be sure to check my sidebar for some of my Superbowl favorites!

Oven Roasted Chickpeas

Ingredients:

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400.

Drain canned chickpeas and rinse in a colander under running water. Pat chickpeas dry with paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible. Transfer to large mixing bowl. Add oil; sprinkle with spices/seasonings and salt. Stir to coat.

Spread chickpeas on nonstick rimmed baking sheet; bake 20 minutes. Stir; then roast 10-15 minutes longer, checking frequently, until crisp but not burnt. (Cooking times may vary). Allow to cool before eating. Will keep several days refrigerated in a covered container.

    I love that you use canned chickpeas for this! When I saw the title I thought “mmm, tasty, but you probably have to do dried chickpeas and blah blah blah”. But you don’t! And it’s a perfect quick use for the extra cans I have in the pantry so that I don’t have to keep making hummus. :-)

    I’ve already put some of your Super Bowl recipes on my menu for Sunday, including the mini ham & cheese sandwiches. We live in Pittsburgh and are huge Steelers fans, so we’re REALLY EXCITED!!!

    Hope your Superbowl menu turns out great. Although I have to admit, I’ll be rooting against your team!

    Great snack. What if I am dried chickpeas not canned. Does it need to be soaked overnight?

    Neev – I’m really not sure how to do this with dried chickpeas. I’ve only used canned. I would assume you would want to soak them overnight first.
