  • 1 large can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (substitute with paprika, if desired)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas well under cool water and lay them out on a kitchen towel to dry completely.
  • Rub them gently between two kitchen towels to loosen the husks.
  • Remove the husks completely and discard them. Dry the chickpeas again after the husks have been removed.
  • Toss the chickpeas in a bowl with the olive oil.
  • Add the paprika, chilli powder, cayenne, and garlic powder and toss very well until the chickpeas are evenly coated with the spices.
  • Add the chickpeas to a sheet pan and spread them out in an even layer.
  • Roast at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 to 18 minutes, or until the chickpeas are crispy on the outside and dark golden brown.
  • Let cool on the sheet pan until cooled completely.
  • Enjoy!


These roasted chickpeas are best enjoyed they day they're made, but they'll keep for about 24 hours in an airtight container at room temperature.
