How to make roasted chickpeas

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large bowl, combine drained chickpeas, oil, garlic, onion powder, smoked paprika, and garam masala. Season with salt and pepper. Give them on a baking sheet prepared with baking paper or simply into a 10×10 casserole dish.

Bake for around 5 minutes, then shake the baked chickpeas with a spatula back and fourth so that they will move a bit. Put them back into the oven and bake for another 5 minutes. Serve plain or combine with your favorite dish, yum.

These Roasted Chickpeas make such a delicious option for meal prep, dinner lunch, or snacking that once you’ve tried them you will make them again in rotation.

Tips and tricks

No garam masala on hand? Absolutely no big deal, just use curry powder for garam masala.
Need more heat? Just add 1 teaspoon chili powder or more to your own liking and preference.

Meal prep: I tried these cold and what can I say they are seriously delicious even this way. If you want them warm just mix with 2 teaspoon oil again and put them in the oven for around 5 minutes at 325°F until warm. Also you can heat 2 teaspoon of oil and warm them in the pan until you have the desired heat reached.

Roasted Chickpeas uses

Salads: Yes, any salad is better when topped with baked chickpeas.
Fried chickpeas: Instead of baking deep fry them which makes them even crunchier.

Served them on lettuce wraps
Use them as topping for soups, like my Tomato Basil Soup with Roasted Chickpeas.

Combine them with pasta dishes or with curries. Think of this Massaman Curry with Roasted Potatoes, for example.
Also yummy over this Mushroom Risotto.
