Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Rinse the chickpeas a colander until the water runs clear. Using a paper towel, dab the chickpeas to dry them.
  • Transfer chickpeas to the baking sheet, add olive oil, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper, and toss until the chickpeas are well coated. Then spread the chickpeas out in a single layer over the baking sheet. Bake chickpeas in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, tossing halfway through.
  • Eat immediately while they're warm, or allow to cool and then store in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Notes

Storage: The roasted chickpeas can be stored in a container for around 4 days at room temperature. Be sure to crack open the container slightly since the air helps them stay crisp.
Freezing Instructions: Allow the chickpeas to cool completely, then place in an airtight container for up to a month. Thaw at room temperature.
