Roasted Chickpeas

roasted chickpeas

Market season is here and for us that means salad season is about to kick into full swing.

After standing in the humid heat of sunny SC for hours eating isn’t always top on our list of things to do, but a nice big salad can work wonders to restore morale. With four markets a week we eat a lot of salads and are always looking for ways to keep things interesting.

Enter Roasted ChickpeasCrunchy and delightful, these are a fabulous salad topper and snack.

Here’s what you need:

3 cups chickpeas (I used dried prepared according to package instructions, but you can use canned as well)

2 Tablespoons olive oil

seasoning to taste

Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Coat chickpeas with olive oil and throw them onto your prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Take chickpeas out, add your seasoning of choice and bake another 10-15 minutes. As far as seasonings go, it’s up to you, this is your chance to get wild. I enjoy chickpeas roasted with our Hot Curry for salad topping and for snacking I like Cocoa Nib Rub.

Happy snacking and salad eating,
