Crunchy Curry Roasted Chickpeas

Makes 3 cups

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (or 2 15-ounce cans) cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons curry blend
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

 

Seasoned Cook: Best enjoyed fresh out of the oven. They will keep for about 1 week, in a sealed container and at room temperature, but they tend to lose their crunch after the first day. For maximized crunchiness, dry thoroughly after rinsing.


Method

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • After rinsing beans, reduce moisture by spreading out on a clean kitchen towel and patting dry.
  • In a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients and stir. Spread in a single layer on 1 to 2 large, rimmed non-stick baking sheets.
  • Roast for 15 minutes, stir and return to oven for another 15 minutes. Chickpeas are done when they are slightly browned and crispy.
