When you bake chickpeas they turn into little golden crispy gems. Just mix them with a little spice and some oil then pop in the oven…it’s that easy!

Ingredients

Chickpeas, canned, rinsed, drained

1 can(s), 400g size can, (1x400g can)

Smoked paprika

1 tsp

Dried chilli flakes

¼ tsp, dried

Ground cumin

½ tsp

Pepitas

1 tbs, (pumpkin seed kernels)

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Place chickpeas on a plate lined with paper towel. Set aside to drain for 20 minutes.
  2. Combine chickpeas, paprika, chilli and cumin in a medium bowl. Spread chickpeas over the prepared tray and lightly spray with oil.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking. Add pepitas and stir to combine. Bake for 10 minutes or until chickpeas are golden and crisp. Cool. Serve.

Notes

TIPS: It is important to drain excess moisture from chickpeas to ensure they are crisp once roasted. Store mixture in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
