Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas (Recipe)

Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas (Recipe)


✅ 2 15-oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed

✅ Extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ Kosher salt

✅ Seasoning of your choice (I used za’atar, sumac and harissa spice)


1️⃣ Drain and dry chickpeas very well. Dry them up using some paper towels and leave them in a colander until they have dried as much as possible (OR you can spread them on a large baking sheet lined with paper towel for a while.)

2️⃣ Heat the oven to 400 degrees F and position a rack right in the middle.

3️⃣ Spread the chickpeas well on a bare baking sheet (do not line the baking sheet with parchment or foil.) Drizzle a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil and season with kosher salt. Toss chickpeas and make sure they are well-coated with the olive oil. Spread them out well on the sheet.

4️⃣ Roast in heated oven anywhere from 20 to 35 minutes, shaking the pan every 10 minutes or so for even cooking. When chickpeas turn a deeper golden brown and the exterior is nice and crispy, they are ready.

5️⃣ Season roasted chickpeas. Once you take the chickpeas out of the oven, immediately season with spices of your choice.
