Crispy Roasted Chickpeas Recipe

All of the ingredients for a healthy, delicious snack may be hiding in your pantry right now

Canned food is commonly looked down upon, but it can certainly be incorporated into a healthy diet in a variety of ways. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, can be used to make soups, salads, hummus, and even sandwiches. Whether it is a meal or a snack, these inexpensive, nutrient-packed legumes can easily add texture, fiber, and protein to any dish. Time to break out those cans of chickpeas that you bought but had no idea how to incorporate into meals.


  • 1 15oz can garbanzo beans

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 400º F, making sure that the rack is centered in the oven.

2. Open chickpea can and pour over strainer in the sink to remove liquid. Rinse chickpeas thoroughly to remove excess sodium.

3. Pat chickpeas dry. Remove any loose chickpea skins that may have come off/partially come off while drying. Air-drying may be necessary to ensure they are thoroughly dry. (If they are not dry, the olive oil will have difficulty sticking to the chickpeas and may leave them soggy instead of crispy!)

4. Place the chickpeas in a bowl and coat with olive oil and salt.

5. Transfer chickpeas to a rimmed baking sheet, and roast for ~30 minutes (time may vary based on individual ovens), stirring or shaking pan every 10 minutes to ensure an even cook.

6. Chickpeas are done when they are golden brown and crispy on the outside.

7. Add your favorite seasonings/spices, whether it may be chili powder, lime zest, or onion powder.

A handful can be used as a crunchy salad topper, a trail mix ingredient, or they can even be eaten as a plain snack.
