The Best Roasted Chickpeas

As many of you probably know by now, I am obsessed with roasted chickpeas. They add a great crunch to my salads or vegetable bowls, and they are a great source of plant-based protein.

 

For other plant-based protein options, see my guide here

 

This recipe has changed the way I make roasted chickpeas.

 

These roasted chickpeas are:

Crunchy

Garlicky

Super Healthy

& Filling

 

The difference between this recipe and others is that you bake the chickpeas for 30 minutes before adding the oil.  This dries the chickpeas – and I think this is where I have been going wrong all this time. I could never completely dry the chickpeas with my kitchen towels and/or paper towel.

 

This step makes all the difference because you completely dry out the chickpeas, and then you add the oil. These chickpeas are a game changer. And I’m telling you, you have to try this.

 

I hope that you love these roasted chickpeas as much as I do!

 

These roasted chickpeas make a great, tasty snack and you can customize the seasonings based on your preferences.

    Roasted chickpeas are the best! I love them as snacks and also as a bit of crunch on top of my salads. Can’t wait to try this version, in the past I’ve always added the oil at the beginning x

      I know! Chickpeas are an amazing fibre and protein source. Let me know how you like this recipe, and specifically how adding oil halfway through works for you. I find it makes them much more crunchy. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

      You can customize the flavourings to your liking. Maybe leave out the garlic for your partner! Thanks for the kind comment, Elena!

    I just made a salad this week with chickpeas in it. I should definitely try this roasted recipe as it will give a crunch to my salads.

      Yes! It would give it a great crunch. I think adding any kind of crunch to a salad makes it tastier. Thanks for the great comment, Katie!

    Chickpeas are my favorite! I will have to try roasting them and putting them in my salad. I made salad last week and just put cooked ones in it. Thanks for posting this idea.

    Chickpeas are so delicious and I’ve never considered roasting them. I like the tip of baking them before adding oil to really dry them.

      That’s the game-changing step! Makings them much crunchier! Thanks, Yaya!
