Spicy roasted chickpeas

I always love to nibble on something, while driving or staring at the computer. I actually never knew that my favourite chickpeas snack would be this delicious and the main point here is healthy. Delicious as a snack or salad topping, these treats are easy to make.

Preheat the oven to 220 degree C. Place 400g cooked or canned chickpeas in a bowl, drizzle with 2-3 tblspn of olive oil and sprinkle with a half tspn of salt, 1 tblspn of ground coriander, half tspn of cayenne pepper or paprika. Toss until well coated. If using canned chickpeas, drain, rinse and pat dry. Place the chickpeas on a baking tray and roast for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Toss half way through cooking and allow to cool before serving.

Keep nibbling healthily!




  1. Definitely going to try these as my brother in law is a vegetarian and he loves roasted chick peas, so will spoil him. Will have to wait till he is back from his trip to SA though.
