How to Make this Recipe for Roasted Chickpeas
This Recipe for Roasted Chickpeas requires only 6, easy ingredients, you may even already have in your pantry! In addition, the types or measurements of spices in this recipe are not hard-and-fast-rules. You can most definitely switch spices and measurements out to best suit your preferences! Here’s what you’ll need…
Chickpeas: Starting with our main ingredient, of course, you’ll need chickpeas! Chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans are a great source of protein (around 15g per cup), and are a great source of healthy carbs, and fiber. Because of this, chickpeas help to keep you feeling full for longer, promoting energy throughout your day.
Avocado Oil: In this recipe, I tossed my chickpeas in avocado oil before roasting for an extra crispy finish. Avocado is a great choice for cooking as it has a high smoke point (520°F), and is a great source of oleic acid, vitamin e, and monounsaturated fat.
Spices: The spice combination in this recipe consists of cumin, garlic, and onion. Although basic, these three spices (plus salt) perfectly compliment each other for a savory, warm and earthy flavor.
