Crispy Chickpeas Ingredients
- Chickpeas: Otherwise known as garbanzo beans. I recommend using low sodium and organic canned chickpeas and the rinsing and draining them of the canning liquid.
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil: We use olive oil to roast our chickpeas in the oven. If you don't have olive oil, you can also use any other high temperature oil such as avocado oil.
- Salt and Pepper: Use salt and pepper to season and flavor the crispy chickpeas.
How To Make Crispy Chickpeas
Step 1: Preheat the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Rinse and drain the canned chickpeas and then pour them onto the lined baking sheet.
Step 2: Drizzle the chickpeas with olive oil and then use your hands to evenly coat the chickpeas with the oil. Season with salt and pepper.
