Roasted Spiced Chickpeas

wiaw-pre-juice-cleanse-9I found a similar recipe on Pinterest (story of my life) and couldn’t wait to make it. It’s extremely easy and makes for a healthy, delicious, guilt-free snack. So instead of taking down an entire box of Triscuits while absentmindedly watching True Blood reruns On Demand, I’ll grab some roasted spiced chickpeas instead.

INGREDIENTS

Makes 4 servings.

  • 2 cans chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Rinse chickpeas. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Mix oil and spices together in a medium mixing bowl. Toss in chickpeas until all are coated evenly.
  4. Spread chickpeas on baking pan(s).
  5. Bake for about 25 minutes, shaking pan every 5-10 minutes to turn chickpeas.
  6. Let cool for a couple minutes, then eat up!

  1. Very tasty, great snack!

  2. Do I need to dry the chickpeas after rinsing?

  3. I’m starting South Beach Diet, day 1. I picked up a 4 lb. medicine ball from Winners to do your workouts that I found on Pinterest. I seriously need to lose some brand new, unwelcomed, middle age belly fat. This first week will be especially challenging without decent snacks. Thanks for the recipes Roasted Spiced Chickpeas, and Crispy Parmesan Edamame.

  4. You have no idea how happy this recipe made me :D I’m trying to find snack replacements to adapt to a healthier lifestyle and these are AMAZING!

  5. what is calorie count i need fiber carbs, protine, and fats plz.

    • Check back in the next couple days, I’ll update the post with full nutritional info :)

      • ty and i will return for calorie count. i figure if fit then you got to know how much fiber protien carbs and fats your putting in it. Most all people need this info in a recipes.

        • You can definitely stay fit without counting calories as long as you are eating healthy, nutrient-rich foods–I do it! :) But of course I know this is helpful info to have when preparing meals, which is why I’ve started to include nutrition details in my new recipe posts. I’ve added it to this post as well–hope you find it helpful!

  6. is the fat 8g? and ty so much for this info it is a great help. Also i have a ? i did the crsipy parmesan edamame not your recipe but they didnt hold up well stored they was only good when they was hot right from oven and i dried them with dish towels and with papaer towels and drained them for 20 min and still wasnt what i call crisp. how come these dont need dried as they come packed in water or juice.

    • I calculated the fat to be 10g. The cheese gets crispy with the parmesan edamame recipe, but the bean itself will stay soft on the inside. The roasted spiced chickpeas will have a similar consistency. If you want them harder, just bake an extra 5 minutes, but the inside should still be soft.
