Garlic Paprika Roasted Chickpeas

This Christmas I attended a party where the host had roasted up some chickpeas. They were awesome! I’m not sure what flavors she spiced hers with, but they had a nice little kick to them. These chickpeas can be spiced with any of your favorite spice combos. I decided to give these ones a try first! Can be made in less than 5 minutes and 25 to cook.

Garlic Paprika Roasted Chickpeas


1 can of chickpeas
1 T. olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder

adjust spices to your taste


Rinse chickpeas in a strainer and lay out on paper towel to dab dry. In a bowl add oil then spices and mix well.

Spread them out evenly on a cookie sheet and bake in 450° oven for about 20-25 minutes depending on the crispiness you like. I like mine to have a crunch so I baked mine for 25 minutes.

Be careful because they will burn quickly at the end. Let them cool and place in an airtight container.

  1. Great recipe! Sounds easy and delicious. Will definitely make this for one of my next dinner parties as appetizer. Nice photography, too!

    Those sound awesome. Are the crunchy?

  3. Mine were nice and crunchy. I laid them all out on paper towel after taking them out of the oven and let them cool. I would also recommend a larger tupperware to put them in. The key I think is rinsing them really well and drying them really well. They are best eaten the day of. I’m going to retoast a few of mine today and see if they get crunchier.
