Spicy Roasted ChickpeasPosted 19 April 2013 by Debbie
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.
- 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!
