I’ve been wanting to find something different to snack on during the day. Recently I’ve been turned on to roasted chickpeas, and they’re addictingly good! I’ve also found how easy they are to make yourself!
Roasted Chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) have this crunch to them that makes them hard not to keep grabbing one after another. They’re light and airy and have a crunch similar to corn nuts. I seasoned them with my Chili seasoning, and they’re very,very tasty!
The key to getting roasted chickpeas crispy, is getting as much moisture out of them as possible. Then making sure they have a liberal amount of olive oil coating them. After cooking my first batch for about 30 minutes, they weren’t as crispy as I liked them, but I found a quick trick, by microwaving the for about 5 minutes after that they were perfect.
The second batch came out perfect and it was due to taking a little more time drying off the chickpeas than I had done with the last.
The chili seasoning on these roasted chickpeas almost remind me of Chili Cheese Fritos, where are my absolute favorite junk food. If you don’t intervene, I’ll eat a whole bag of those tasty corn chips in one sitting. This is definitely a safer alternative for me!
This is a great recipe to experiment with as well! My BBQ seasoning would go great with this recipe, I’d also imagine an a taco seasoning would be great with these too!
Roasted chickpeas are cheap snack that’s easy to make, and guilt-free. It’s a win-win situation here folks! Get to making this recipe ASAP!
Roasted chickpeas are one of my favorite things, I really love them with baked sweet potatoes. Love the spice mix, all of my favorite, most used spices. Neat microwave trick, I’ll have to try that if I have a not so crunchy batch one time. Pinning.
