Learn how to make the best Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas in just 30 minutes with this step-by-step tutorial. They're a healthy snack on their own, and delicious on top of salad or hummus, too!
- 1 can chickpeas (15 oz.)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp cajun seasoning or more
- pinch of salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425°.
Pour chickpeas into a strainer, then rinse them off until all the liquid from the can is gone.
Use several paper towels to pat the chickpeas dry. You won't be able to get them completely dry, but partially dry is the goal. Then, pour them into a bowl and add olive oil, cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper and stir to combine.
Pour chickpeas out onto a lined baking sheet, then sprinkle additional cajun seasoning on top (1-2 tsp).
Bake chickpeas for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and wait 5 minutes before transferring them to a bowl.
*Chickpeas are also called garbanzo beans
-Other delicious seasoning options include but are not limited to: garlic herb seasoning or a combination of garlic powder and smoked paprika
-Make sure to let these chickpeas sit at room temperature for 5 minutes after taking them out of the oven so they crisp up even more. If you plan on storing these, do NOT put a lid on them and store them at room temperature.
