Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted Garbanzo Beans


  • 1 (15 oz) can garbanzo beans or ~1 cup dried
  • ~2 tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • cumin, pepper, cayenne, garlic, chili powder, lime juice, etc


Prep (day before)

  • If using dried beans, cover them with ~3″ of water and let soak for ~a day

Roast Chickpeas

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F
  • Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans
  • Dry beans very well with a kitchen towel or paper towels
  • Discard the skins if using canned beans
  • Toss beans with olive oil and salt (not the spices, they will burn)
  • Roast until brown and crispy (40–60 minutes)
  • Season to taste with salt and spices
  • Let cool on a cooling rack


55 minutes was slightly too long, 50 seems perfect for my current oven and dried beans.
