Spicy Oven-Roasted Chickpeas

by Megan on August 6, 2010

I’ve been snacking on pie this week … pie and chocolate marshmallows. There were definitely the occasional yogurt covered raisin too. And now it’s come to a point where I just feel like I need to get a healthy snack in my life.

So I decided hang out with some chick peas and get my crunch on in a health-conscious way. These crunch like a snack should and kinda smell like christmas. Basically, I wish I would’ve made a double recipe.

Spicy Oven-Roasted Chickpeas
Recipe adapted from The Kitchn

Ingredients:

  • 1 (15 ounce) can organic chickpeas
  • 1 T olive oil
  • scant 1 T chunky sea salt
  • sprinkle of black pepper
  • 1/4 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 t cumin
  • 1/4 t coriander
  • dash nutmeg
  • sprinkle of red pepper flakes

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Pour the chickpeas into a colander and drain and rinse very well under running water. Pat dry.
  2. Toss the chickpeas with olive oil and spread out on a large cookie sheet. Roast for 30-40 minutes or until brown and crispy. Turn and stir every ten minutes so they don’t burn.
  3. Take out and toss to taste with salt and spices.

I feel like these could be the new crouton.

I use them like croutons! They’re great on salads, or in pasta sauces. Mostly, I eat them as a snack. Roasted chickpeas are so good!
