Sweet & savory roasted chickpeas

Chickpeas are a fantastic source of protein, iron, magnesium, vitamin B6 and calcium and can be used in stews, soups, salads, dips and even as a type of gluten free flour! One of my new favourite ways of snacking on chickpeas is as a roasted snack. They make a delicious and healthy alternative to popcorn and are so much better for you!

Here are a couple of recipe ideas you can use to make scrummy roasted chickpeas, either sweet, or savoury !

Savoury

Ingredients:

  • 1 425 gm. can of chickpeas, drained
  • 1 tsp. Parmesan
  • 1 tsp. Olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. Rock salt

Method:

  1. Remove all the moisture from the chickpeas by patting them dry with a paper towel, and then put them into a mixing bowl along with the olive oil and seasonings.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 220c and then spread the chickpeas out over a shallow baking tray.
  3. Bake for 10-15 minutes (depending on how powerful your oven is) and the toss the chickpeas before returning to the oven to bake for a further 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them so that they don’t burn.
  4. When done, turn the oven off, open the door and allow them to cool before removing them from the oven.
  5. Serve in a bowl as snacks, or sprinkle on top of a salad to give it a delicious crunch!

Sweet

Ingredients:

  • 1 425 gm. can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey
  • 1/2 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. Crushed rock salt
  • 1/5 tsp. nutmeg

Method:

  1. Remove any remaining liquid from the chickpeas by patting dry with a paper towel, then preheat the oven to 200c
  2. Spread the chickpeas out over a shallow baking tray and bake for 30 minutes or until crunchy. You might want to take them out halfway and just move them around a little.
  3. Remove chickpeas and place into a mixing bowl whilst still hot. Add remaining ingredients and mix well before returning to the baking tray to cook for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Serve warm or cold!
