Roasted Chickpeas – Downshiftology

These roasted chickpeas are all about versatility. They’re soft enough to become the base of a salad, crispy enough to snack on, and extremely adaptable when it comes to packing some protein and texture to meals.

In short – there’s just too much to love about chickpeas (which I talk about in my list of chickpea recipes). I’ll normally use them straight out of the can, but the extra 25 minutes to roast them is well worth the wait.

Fresh out of the oven, these roasted chickpeas are great for adding instant crunch to your meals. Though, I will say that they do soften over time. But the slight softness makes them great for a chickpea salad. Nonetheless, they’re still one of the best vegetarian proteins that offer a delicious texture and hints of toasty flavor!

Just like any roasted ingredient, all you really need are a drizzle of oil and a sprinkle of salt.

  • Chickpeas: You can use either dry or canned chickpeas. But for convenience, canned chickpeas are the ideal choice!
  • Oil: Any neutral oil will work here, such as avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil.
  • Spices: You can use a variety of spices to really amp up the flavor. So choose your favorites! You just need about 2 to 3 teaspoons total… and spices blends are always a hit as well!
  • Salt: Just one teaspoon is needed to give these legumes a hint of savoriness.
