This is a super delicious and simple snack recipe that features one of my absolute favorite ingredients- chickpeas! Also known as garbanzo beans, these lovely little legumes are incredibly versatile. Aside from my beloved hummus, one of my favorite ways to enjoy chickpeas is roasting them with some tasty spices for a crunchy healthy snack or salad topper. I have experimented with various different flavorings here, and decided that you really can’t go wrong! They will keep in an airtight container for storage after roasting, but they truly are best (and addictive) fresh out of the oven. Enjoy!
Oven Roasted Chickpeas [Vegan, Gluten-Free]
- 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas (may be from 15 oz. can)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until the chickpeas are evenly coated with the flavorings.
- Spread evenly onto the prepared baking sheet, and roast 35-40 minutes, until crisp and golden, tossing a few times during baking to prevent uneven browning. Allow to sit and cool a bit before eating, if you can wait!
