About this recipe: Chickpeas coated with olive oil and spices are oven-roasted until golden and crisp. Pairs well with a cold beer!


Serves: 12 

  • 3 (400g) tins chickpeas, drained
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt, divided, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
  2. Combine drained chickpeas, olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt, hot sauce, paprika, garlic powder, chilli powder, black pepper and cumin in a large bowl. Spread evenly over 2 baking trays.
  3. Bake in the centre of the preheated oven, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes, until chickpeas are golden and look dry on the outside, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Let cool before serving, 5 to 10 minutes.


Cooking time may vary. It is okay for some chickpeas to start to burn slightly. They will get crunchier as they cool.
