Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

When I first started eating chickpeas, they kind of freaked me out. Raw chickpeas have a bit of a chicken-y taste and I just wasn’t too sure about them. I wanted to love them tossed into salads and buddha bowls, but there was just something about them that I just wasn’t too sure about.

I love raw chickpeas in chickpea salad, but just to eat plain was just too much. That is until I started making roasting them! Roasted chickpeas are delicious, especially when seasoned. Season them with your favorite seasonings to go with whatever you’re making. Tacos? Season them with taco seasoning. Buffalo bowl? Roast them then toss in buffalo sauce. There are so many ways to season chickpeas. One of my favorites is Greek-seasoned Roasted Chickpeas.

How to Make Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Want to make your chickpeas really crispy? The key to crispy roasted chickpeas is to make sure that they’re dry. After rinsing, use a lint-free towel to dry your chickpeas. Once dry, toss with olive oil and your seasonings. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake. Use a baking sheet or pan with higher edges to keep them from rolling off the pan.
