Garlic Roasted Chickpeas

Prep time: 5 min, Cook time: 30 min

This simple snack is made with just 3 simple ingredients and is packed with deliciousness!

The key to getting them crispy in the oven is to dry them first. I drained and rinsed them and then spread them out on paper towels. I sprinkled a dash of salt to help pull the moisture out and then let them sit for a bit while the oven was heating up.

I then patted the tops down with another paper towel and transferred to a baking sheet.

I think it also helps to coat in olive oil first, then add spices. I’m planning to serve these alongside my lemon garlic hummus (Recipe here) so I am using my Trinidad Lemon Garlic seasoning from the Spice House.

The chickpeas are literally a blank canvas, though, so don’t be afraid to try out different flavors and spice mixes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 14oz can chickpeas
  • 1t olive oil
  • 1t seasoning (I used Trinidad Lemon Garlic. Garlic salt would also work nicely)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Drain and rinse chickpeas. Let sit for about 5 min and pat dry.
  3. Spread chickpeas in a single layer on a baking sheet and then toss in olive oil.
  4. Once they are well coated, toss in seasoning.
  5. Bake for 25-30 min, tossing halfway through.
  6. I like to add just a sprinkle of more seasoning or sea salt right when they come out of the oven for an extra little pop of flavor.
  7. Cool slightly and enjoy!

These are great on their own or can really dress up dips and appetizers!
