Seriously Crispy Chickpeas – FIT FOOD

Roasted chickpeas

Ingredients – makes plenty

  • 1 tin of chickpeas
  • 2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp of curry powder of your choice – Optional


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. 2. Drain the chickpeas, place them in-between two towels and roll to dry, it doesn’t matter if the skin starts to go off chickpeas, they will get super crispy if the most of the skin is removed
  3. 3. Mix your chickpeas, oil and salt in a bowl, don’t add any other spices at this point as it would protect it from crisping up
  4. 4. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes until golden
  5. 5. Add the additional spices now while still warm, don’t panic if chickpeas are not crispy right away as they will be while they cool down
  6. 6. Serve as a snack or salad topping

Crispy chickpeas would work great as a toping for this salad:ย
