  • Spread the fries into a single layer on the roasting pan and roast for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  • Chickpeas: Line another baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the chickpeas with olive oil paprika, garlic powder, curry, salt and pepper.
  • Spread the chickpeas into a single layer on the roasting pan and roast for 20-30 minutes until crispy golden brown.
