crispy chickpeas


i found the recipe in a chatelaine magazine and modified it.

ingredients: can of chickpeas, olive oil, sea-salt, black pepper, ground coriander, cumin, ground ginger, and paper towels.

i added “paper towels” in the ingredients because i totally didn’t have any and had to pat the chickpeas dry using a few paper napkins, which still worked, but just took a lot longer. after i drained, washed, and patted the chickpeas dry, i spread them out on a baking sheet, drizzled olive oil on there, and tossed the chickpeas around in it. i made sure that the chickpeas were evenly spread on the baking sheet, keeping them as separated as possible and i sprinkled some salt and pepper over them. i then popped everything into the oven (that was preheated to 400 degrees) and roasted them for almost an hour; to be honest, i wasn’t really paying attention to the time, but i just kept checking on them by moving the chickpeas around periodically with a spoon and took them out when they looked golden-brown, crispy, and done. i placed the chickpeas in a bowl and sprinkled salt, ground coriander, cumin, ground ginger, and black pepper on them, tossed it around, and served it as an appetizer.

great drinking snack, goes perfectly with a cold beer.

  1. OMG this looks amazing. Might have to try and make this today. I are a whole bag of chips last night and then looked at the bag and realized for every 10 chips was 200 calories! Somehow I think this would be a healthier snacking option lol!

    • they’re sooooo good! and the crispier, the better… i went out to a lounge in yaletown for an event the other day that served something similar, but they weren’t as crispy, and i found myself craving the ones that i had made instead haha i think i’m going to stop by wholefoods on my walk home from yoga today so i can get some chickpeas to make more!
