Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

Posted 19 April 2013 by

This recipe for spicy roasted chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) is so easy and is a fantastic nutritious alternative to other savoury snacks. You only need a tin of chickpeas, a little oil and whatever seasonings you want to add. Chickpeas are high in fibre, low in fat and a good source of nutrients like vitamin B6 and iron. Once roasted to delicious crunchiness, they’re also very moreish! You can adjust all the seasoning amounts to suit your taste.

Spicy roasted chickpeasIngredients:

  • 1 tin of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper

Mix the spices with the oil in a bowl. Add the chickpeas and stir them well enough to completely coat. Roast them at 200°C (about 400°F) for 30-45 minutes, until they are darker brown. Be careful when you open the oven as the odd one might explode!
