Ingredients

This is a great crunchy and savoury snack you can enjoy on their own or sprinkled over top of your favourite dips, salads or soups.

  • 2 cups (500 mL) cooked chickpeas (if using dried chickpeas * see preparation below)
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) chili powder, curry powder or garam masala
 

Preparation

Pat chickpeas dry and remove any loose skins.

Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Toss chickpeas with oil, salt and pepper. Spread onto prepared sheet.

Roast for 25 minutes or until starting to brown. Sprinkle chickpeas with chili powder and stir to coat. Return to oven and roast for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Let cool completely before using.

* Preparing Dried Chickpeas

Rinse chickpeas and remove any shrivelled or broken chickpeas (look them over).

Step 1: Soaking

Soak chickpeas for 12 hours or overnight and use 3 cups (750 mL) of cold water for every 1 cup (250 mL) of chickpeas.

For a quick soak combine the same amount of water and chickpeas in a saucepan and boil for 3 minutes. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Drain and rinse with cool water.

Step 2: Cooking

Stovetop

To cook chickpeas from an overnight soak or a quick soak; combine chickpeas with fresh water and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered for 1 hour or up to 1 ½ hours until tender all the way through when tested.  Drain well and remove any skins if necessary.
