Two Roasted Chickpea Recipes for Sweet or Spicy Snacking 2


These roasted chickpea recipes have got you covered: Sweet, with cinnamon and sugar, or spicy roasted chickpeas.

roasted chickpeas with spices

Do you call them chickpeas or garbanzo beans? Either way, they’re a great staple to keep on hand.

They come dried in bags or canned; the dried chickpeas are generally a less expensive option. Preparing them takes some extra work (soaking and cooking) but they’re easy to keep on hand this way.

You might have noticed that your supermarket snack aisle (or your natural food store) is stocking little packets of roasted chickpeas. They cost (roughly) 70 cents per ounce. Compare that to a ready-to-use can of chickpeas which runs (again, roughly) 13 cents an ounce. You’ll need to add the cost of some spices and oil, but that’s minimal.

Making these roasted chickpea recipes is really very easy. You can use prepared dried beans or opt for canned.

Either way, drain them and dry them well before you roast them. Use a kitchen towel to remove as much moisture as possible, and while you’re at it, pick out the loose skins. Don’t be too finicky about it, but the skinless beans will crisp up better than the ones with skins.

You’ll roast the chickpeas first, then add the seasonings.

These roasted chickpea recipes take snacking to an unexpected place — high protein legumes paired with seasonings, both sweet and spicy.
