Just the other day I made roasted Chickpeas for the first time and oh my goodness they were good! Super quick; easy and my kids love them too!
You will need:
- Olive Oil
- Spices (various, listed below)
I started with dried chickpeas and cooked them according to the directions on the bag; you can use canned chickpeas as well just be sure to rinse them before you get started.
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees & toss your chickpeas in a bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the chickpeas (just enough to lightly coat them) and add spices.
I made two batches of chickpeas, so the first batch was Olive Oil; Cumin; Chili Powder & a touch of garlic (granules). The second batch had Olive Oil; Garlic (granules) & Thyme (dried). Once you have tossed the chickpeas with the oil & spices place them on a baking sheet (ensuring you only have 1 layer).
The chickpeas will bake for 25-35 mins (depending on your oven and preference – my kids loved the slightly softer chickpeas and I preferred extra crunchy). Be sure to flip halfway through and watch for a golden brown colour.
