Roasted Chickpeas

Oven roasted chickpea nuts - An easy vegan snack recipe idea with lots of protein. Great for vegetarians too! These crunchy roasted chickpeas are low-fat and high in protein, which makes them perfect for an easy and simple vegetarian and vegan snack idea. Kids will love these too! Chickpeas are a good source of iron for vegetarians and vegans.


  • 1 14 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp olive, safflower or sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • extra salt, to taste


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Gently pat rinsed chickpeas dry, then toss with oil to coat well.
Arrange chickpeas on a single layer on a baking tray. Sprinkle well with garlic powder and salt, and any extra seasonings you like.
Roast in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until crunchy, gently shaking once or twice to turn.
Sprinkle with additional salt, if desired, before serving.
I recommend enjoying your roasted chickpeas when they're fresh out of the oven, as they have a lovely crunchy and warm texture, but they're great when cooled too. Enjoy your baked and roasted chickpeas!
Makes three servings.
