Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

What happens when your sink decides to not work? A very sad Jose. I had to deal with that for about a week, which meant having take out. While nice, there’s something about making your own food that I completely miss. At the same time, I hard I didn’t know what to start making once I got everything in order. It was, completely weird and counterproductive.

One of the first things I made was Crispy Roasted Chickpeas. It didn’t take that long, I used essentially 1 sheet pan and the oven. That was it. It was easy, simple, and super addicting. These little nuggets of joy can be used as a snack or you can even add it as a topping for your favorite dishes. Here’s my Crispy Roasted Chickpeas!

Easy in 1, 2, 3.


  • 2 cans of chickpeas. I used 2 – 15 ounce cans.
  • Olive Oil
  • Kosher Salt & Pepper

    (The rest of the seasonings its really up to you, but this is what I used)
  • Garlic Powder
  • Paprika
  • Parsley (as a topping)
  • Flaky Salt (for added crunch and texture)
  • Cumin

How to:

  • Preheat oven for 375. Drain the chickpeas and add to a baking sheet.
  • Bake the chickpeas for 30 minutes. Shake the at least once so that the chickpeas can really dry out.
  • Remove the chickpeas, toss in a bowl with your seasonings (Salt Pepper, Cumin, garlic Powder, Paprika). Toss to combine. Add a touch of olive oil (I would say, max one tablespoon, but until the seasonings is stuck to the chickpeas.
  • Place the chickpeas back into the sheet pan and cook for 10 minutes.
  • SNACK!

This goes perfectly on top of some pasta for some added crunch, as a side with some gnocchi or just by itself as you’re watching a tv show or movie!
