    Roasted Chickpeas – Serves 4


    • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 2-4 teaspoons of spices or chopped fresh herbs for toppings, such as cinnamon sugar, smoked paprika, za’atar, fresh rosemary, or parsley and parmesan cheese


    1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

    2. Spread the rinsed chickpeas out on to a sheet pan lined with paper towel. Cover with additional layers of paper towel and allow to dry at least 5-10 minutes until the chickpeas are dry to the touch (the drier your chickpeas are, the crisper they will be).

    3. Spread the chickpeas on to another sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Drizzle the oil over the chickpeas and sprinkle salt on top. Stir the chickpeas on the pan to combine and coat with the oil.

    4. Roast the chickpeas 20-30 minutes, stirring or shaking the pan every 10 minutes. Chickpeas are done when they are golden and crispy.

    5. Transfer the warm chickpeas to a bowl and toss with any additional seasoning blend.

    6. Store up to 3 days in an airtight container.
