I’ve wanted to make these for ages! I love chickpeas and I also love snacky things like chips and nuts to have with cocktails and thought these would be a healthier option. These little morsels were nutty, spicy and crispy not too long out of the oven and I really enjoyed them.
So give them a go! They’re not at all difficult to make and well worth it for a delicious, guilt free snack.
Recipe for spicy roasted chickpeas:
1 400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
20mls macadamia or grapeseed oil
Decent pinch chilli flakes
1 tspn lime zest
1/2 tspn ground cumin
1 tspn brown sugar
1/2 tspn ground ginger
Freshly ground sea salt and black pepper
Preheat oven to 200C. Line a flat baking pan with baking paper.
Place chickpeas on a flat surface lined with paper towel. Pat dry really well to make sure there’s no moisture left.
Place the remainder of the ingredients into a large bowl and stir well to combine. Add chickpeas and stir to coat well. Place chickpeas in a single layer onto prepared baking pan.
Roast chickpeas for around 35-40 minutes, shaking at least once during the roasting time. While still hot from the oven, sprinkle with extra sea salt.
Cool on tray for a few minutes then serve.
