You don’t have to be a vegetarian to love crispy, crunchy, and salty chickpeas! These, in particular, are tossed with fragrant and hot Indian spices and toasted to perfection in the oven.

Skip the potato chips and crunch on these babies; they are 100% more flavorful and happen to be a heck of a lot better for you. Add them to a salad, garnish a bowl of soup, or snack on them as is.

How to Roast Chickpeas

Spread the seasoned chickpeas onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Roast the chickpeas at 425 degrees Fahrenheit (218 degrees Celsius) for 25-30 minutes until crispy!

It is important to note that chickpeas can quickly turn from perfectly crispy to burnt, depending on your oven. Consequently, keep a close eye on the oven, in the last 10 minutes of the roasting process, to avoid burning them.
