Roasted, Spiced Chickpeas

The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon

  • Roasted, spiced chickpeas are a tasty salad topping and make a great snack by themselves. Angela Liddon/OhSheGlows.com

Serves 3 (1/2 cup (115g) each)

One 15-ounce can (400g) chickpeas
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric

Preheat oven to 400 F (204 C), and line a medium baking sheet with a couple of paper towels.

Rinse and drain the chickpeas and place them on the paper towels. Add a couple of paper towels on top, and roll the chickpeas around until they are completely dry. This helps them crisp up in the oven.

Put the chickpeas in a medium mixing bowl and stir in the olive oil until they are coated. Now, stir in the rest of the seasonings.

Discard the paper towel and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the spiced chickpeas back onto the baking sheet.

Roast the chickpeas for 20 minutes. Give the pan a gentle shake to stir the chickpeas and roast them for another 15-20 minutes, until they are golden and lightly charred on the bottom. (Roast for a full 40 minutes to get them crispy, but keep an eye on them, as oven temps vary.)

Cool the chickpeas for 5 minutes or so, and then use them to top salads or just to snack on. They will lose their crispness quickly, so these are best enjoyed immediately.

Tip: You can also freeze the chickpeas once they are fully cooled and reheat them in the oven for 5 minutes or so to bring back the crispiness.
