Recipe Notes

  • The drier the chickpeas are before tossing with oil/spices, the crunchier they will be.
  • For even better results, remove all of the chickpea skins before cooking. It takes a long time, but it gets the chickpeas super crunchy!
  • This all being said, these chickpeas aren't meant to be totally crispy - they have a meaty inside that really adds texture to salads and pasta dishes!
  • Feel free to freestyle the spices here - turmeric, harissa powder, or steak seasoning are all great additions!
