Exquisitely Spiced Oven Roasted Chickpeas

  

My new food crush! 😍 Tired of Crisps & Popcorn with your Saturday Night Movie? Try these Amazingly Tasty Healthy little morsels! Full of fibre & much healthier than nuts. I had some trouble pointing my Chickpeas as I have a can from Aldi coming in at 4pp drained weight & a can from Supervalu coming in at 8pp for the same drained weight both stored in salted water so I’m at a loss! I’m going to go with the higher one to be safe & say these serve 2 at 4pp each. Check points on whatever brand you use to be sure! You can use any array of Spices you want on these or lightly salt them. Here’s what I used:

1 400g (240g drained weight) Chickpeas

Sprayoil

1 Tsp Smoked Paprika

1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper

1/4 Tsp Chilli Powder (I used Mild)

1/4 Tsp Ground Cumin

1/4 Tsp Garam Masala

  

Drain your Chickpeas into a Colander & rinse well under cold running water. Shake well to remove excess water. Place in a bowl lined with several sheets of kitchen paper & rub the Chickpeas well to dry. The outer shells will come off when you rub them & that’s perfect they are better with the shells off. They need to be bone dry so repeat this several times, leave them sitting in the bowl for 10 minutes or so & come back & repeat the drying with the paper towels ensuring all moisture is gone. Spray lightly with sprayoil & add spices & mix well to coat all the Chickpeas. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper & sprayed lightly with oil. Bake in a preheated oven at 200c for about 30 to 40 minutes until crisp & crunchy. Watch them closely near the end so they don’t burn. Serve immediately or allow to cool & Enjoy!
