Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine chickpeas and vinegar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let stand for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a roasting pan with foil.

  • Drain chickpeas well, discarding vinegar. Spread on the roasting pan and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle salt on top and toss to coat.

  • Roast chickpeas, shaking the pan every 8 to 10 minutes, until they are slightly soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Serve warm or at room temperature.


Cook's Note:

For crunchier chickpeas, roast for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, taking care they don't burn. At 40 minutes, they are crunchy throughout. The longer they roast, the less vinegar flavor will remain, and the harder they get.
