Roasted Chickpeas Recipe: This may be the first time that I have ever tried garbanzo beans. I read that these little roasted chickpeas were addicting and I think that may be an understatement. WOW!
I purchased 2 cans of garbanzo beans from Trader Joe’s and should have bought a case! This recipe is super easy, the only pain is shelling each and every bean. With that being said… they are worth it. Next time I will get my daughter and husband to help speed up the process.
Garbanzo beans (as many cans as you want)
Directions: Empty your cans into a strainer and rinse with cold water for a couple minutes.
Place paper towels on your baking sheet and pour on your clean beans. With another paper towel roll them and pat them dry.
Be sure to take the shells off of your garbanzo beans. Once clean and dry, coat with olive oil and place on baking sheet.
At 400 degrees roast for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. The crispier you can get them the better (just don’t burn.) Test one – if it is crunchy, it’s ready.
Right when you take them out of the oven season and serve. I used sea salt but next time I am going to spice them up.
Delicious! Do you roast chickpeas? If you do anything differently, tell us about it below.
