I am one of those people who loves to snack. I have a few snacks during the day, in between breakfast, lunch and dinner. Usually it is a piece of fruit or a handful of nuts and every now and then I have a small chunk of cheese. I have read over a few blogs about roasted chickpeas and I have kept the idea in the back of my mind for quite some time now. A few weekends back I was getting together the snacks for the Two Oceans simple snacking challenge and before I had gone out to buy the plate to display the snacks on I had decided to make roasted chickpeas as one of the items. Not only do they taste good they fitted onto the plate perfectly. Alex popped around to help Dave with something and they had a few beers after they had done what they needed to do. I gave them the roasted chickpeas to munch on while drinking and they both commented on how great they were. They are easy to make and you can change the seasoning to suit your own palate.
Have you tried roasted chickpeas?
- 1 400 g tin chickpeas drained, rinsed and patted dry
- 5 mls ground coriander
- 2.5 mls paprika
- 10 mls salt flakes
- 60 mls olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 220° Celsius
- Mix the coriander, paprika and salt together in a bowl
- Add the chickpeas and toss to coat the chickpeas thoroughly
- Place the olive oil in a baking tin
- Put the baking tin in the oven for 2 minutes
- Remove from the oven and place the chickpeas in the oil in a single layer
- Bake for 10 minutes

Tandy, yum!! I adore chickpeas (as you know!), and this sounds like a delicious way to prepare them. When I was little, I used to eat them deep fried (Asian street food). 🙂
I so want to try deep fried chickpeas – they sound amazing!
I am with you I need to snack! And these look and sound like a delicious healthy alternative to chips 😀
Much healthier I think!
Thank you so much for this recipe, I had it before and lost it so I was thrilled to see this today.
I will be making them this afternoon.
Loads of hugs. xx
Loads of hugs to you too xxx
I have made them before and lived them very much, Tandy. 🙂 I really like your addition of coriander and would like to try that with my next batch. 🙂
Let me know what you think!
This is an awesome snack idea and Pete will love them.

I totally adore chickpeas in anything and everything.. I m pinning this to try later !!

I have done this once before and sort of forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder. It’s a perfect snack.
I am going to keep some prepped and half roasted for when we have drop in visitors 🙂
Oh Tandy, I think we must both have chickpeas on our mind, I have a scheduled post of roasted chickpeas for this week!! Love your spice mix, sounds yum xx
Sometimes blog land works like that and a few of us have the same type of posts scheduled 🙂
I love chickpeas and love them roasted. Usually buy them in Spain or in England in the Ethnic shops – time to start making my own methinks!
Next step for me is to start from scratch with chickpeas and not buy canned!
Always on the lookout for snacky things for the kiddos lunch boxes. The school is a nut free zone and I think these will be a great alternative. Thanks Tandy I will definitely try!
that is so interesting to hear that the school is a nut free zone 🙂
i love chick peas–and being vegetarian it is a staple at home–most Indian grocery store stock dry roasted chick peas called (Daria) and they are just divine–your recipe looks great – and the bowl
The bowl is a new treat! We don’t have an Indian grocery store down here sadly 🙂
