Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas 5


I don’t know about you, but when I’m having a cheeky pre-dinner cocktail, glass of vino or G&T I like something to snack on. Something savoury, something satisfyingly moreish and occasionally something slightly more healthy than my Cheddar & Thyme Crackers. (although both together would be nice!)

These chickpeas totally fit the bill. They’re smoky, spicy and crunchy on the outside, with a slight squish in the middle. They’re pretty hard to resist but if you find yourself eating more than a handful there’s no need to feel guilty! Bonus!

Whipping up a batch of these lovely little morsels couldn’t be easier. A can of chickpeas, mixed with a little olive oil and the spices of your choice, roasted in the oven for 30-40 minutes until crunchy, done! They’re so adaptable too, I’m thinking garlic powder and rosemary next time…

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

1 can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp hot chilli powder
Salt & black pepper

Preheat the oven to 200 C / 400 F.

Drain the can of chickpeas thoroughly then put them into a bowl with the oil and spices. Season to taste, mix well and then spread out the chickpeas in a small roasting tin. Pop them into the oven for about 30-40 minutes until they are nice and crunchy. Enjoy!
