Peri-Peri Roasted Chickpeas

I’d recently discovered a very tasty, easy to make vegan snack that is quite versatile with flavours. Roasted chickpeas are healthy, with a kick of protein in them and will leave you feeling a lot less peckish!

Total cooking time: 40 minutes including prep

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cans of chickpeas (400g net weight)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp peri-peri spice
  • A couple shakes of mixed herbs

 

Method:

  • Crank up the heat in the oven to 180°C
  • While the oven is heating up, prepare your chickpeas
  • Drain the chickpeas in a strainer and lay them out on a clean kitchen towel
  • Absorb as much of the chickpea liquid as you can so that they are quite dry (this helps with the crunchy texture)
  • Put the chickpeas in an ovenproof dish or baking tray
  • Pour the olive oil over them, making sure they are all covered in olive oil
  • Pop them in the oven for 30 minutes
  • Once they are cooked, they should be browned on the outside
  • Add the peri-peri spice and mixed herbs to the chickpeas and mix well

The roasted chickpeas are delicious fresh out of the oven: crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. If you save them for later, they have a bit of a chewier texture but still equally tasty.
