  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (1.5 cups)
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Pat and roll chickpeas in a kitchen towel to dry. Remove any skins that have fallen off and place on baking sheet.
  • Toss chickpeas with olive oil and salt. Place in preheat oven and roast 30 minutes, shaking the pan halfway through cooking.
  • Remove pan from oven and toss with spices (if using) while still warm. Let cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes.
  • Eat immediately or transfer to a jar, storage container, or bag with a lightly cracked lid. Store at room temperature. Chickpeas are best within the first day or so, but will last 4-5 days.


Variations: Use a different spice or spice mixture to season your chickpeas after roasting. Here are a few ideas:
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Chinese 5 spice, curry powder or za’atar
  • Or 1 tsp. of another seasoning of your choice
