Roasted Chickpeas

I tried making roasted chickpeas today since, like many of you, I am self-isolating at home. I like to normally eat out at least once a week to change it up from cooking at home, but that seems to be a thing of the past, at least for the next little while.

I was going through Flipboard and the heading of an article, “How to make crispy roasted chickpeas in your oven”, caught my eye. I skimmed the article and recipe and made my version of it since I mostly use recipes as suggestions on how to make the dish. That’s why I don’t provide quantities of some of the ingredients I list in my recipes and don’t really put how long to cook something for. Each cooking appliance cooks food differently, just like the person cooking it. 🙂


Level: Easy | Time: 15 min | Servings: 1-2


  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Black pepper (to taste)
  • Cayenne pepper (if you like spicy)


  1. Empty the can of chickpeas into a colander and rinse.
  2. Put the chickpeas and 1 tbsp of olive oil into a mixing bowl. 
  3. Add salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste.
  4. Toss until the chickpeas are evenly seasoned. 
  5. Put the seasoned chickpeas in a single layer on tin foil covering a sheet pan.
  6. Preheat oven to 375F.
  7. Bake in the oven until the chickpeas turn slightly brown. (I have a Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven that not only air fries, but also broils, bakes and toasts. It is my favourite appliance ever, hands down. I baked the chickpeas in there and then switched it to the air fryer option for the last 5 min to make it even crispier.)
  8. Take out of the oven, cool, and serve as a healthy snack.
