1 can of chickpeas, drained (save the water to make aquafaba / vegan meringue)
1tbsp olive oil
Seasoning (below is what I used, but you can honestly add any seasoning you want):
1.5tsp chili powder
1tsp all-purpose seasoning
a dash of salt
a dash of cumin
Preheat your fan oven to 200 degrees celsius.
Line roasting tin with baking paper.
Tip chickpeas to a mixing bowl. Add olive oil and seasoning. Toss to ensure an even spice coating.
Tip to roasting tin and roast for 15-20 minutes. As mentioned on our IG, I roasted them for 15 minutes, took them out to toss them around, then popped them back in for 5 minutes.
Once I was happy with the texture, I took them out and let them cool for around 5-10 minutes before eating!
Feel free to roast them for a total of 25-30 minutes (tossing midway) if you want them to be crunchier but please keep an eye out as you don't want them to burn. Enjoy!
Hot tip: Once roasted and cooled, don't forget to keep them in an air-tight container so they don't go bad. They should stay fresh for 3-5 days if stored properly. Let us know if you try them out 🤗
