Perfectly Dry Roasted Chickpeas

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"Roasting these without oil or salts first lets them crisp up perfectly. Letting them cool in the oven is crucial to the crunch factor. Season with a teaspoon of your favourite flavours: combine sea salt with pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, chipotle, cayenne pepper, curry powder, lemon pepper, or anything you like."

Very good but didn't find the seasoning sticks so after the oven bit I tossed them with a touch of butter in a frying pan for a few minutes. Next time, I'll do as another reviewer did and add o...

I baked them too long I think and they were too hard. I might try again, but the flavor wasn’t there.

I made these for my husband and he loves them! I made these exactly as written and seasoned them lightly with sea salt. Thanks for sharing. #Allrecipesallstarscanada #recipedetective

I've made these twice now and they're great for snacking and so much healthier than potato chips.
