Roasted chickpeas are great for a snack if you are trying to avoid any form of starches or carbs. You can add them to your salads, soups or even just eat them on their own. Add herbs and spices of your choice to create unique tasting varieties. Eating chickpeas on a regular basis may help reduce the risk of certain diseases and offer a variety of health benefits.
In the meantime, drain and rinse the chickpeas. Place some kitchen roll or tea towel in the bottom of the bowl and put the chickpeas on top and then pat them dry.
When you have absorbed as much of the water as you can, add the olive oil, herbs / spices and the salt to the bowl and give it a good stir round.
Take the roasting tray and cover it with tin foil. When the oven is ready, put the chickpeas on the tray and place in the oven on the middle shelf.
Roast for 20-25 minutes but check on them from time to time and give them a little shake. Some of the chickpeas may pop which is perfectly normal, if you do hear popping from the oven, then check on them and give them a shake again. If you need to then turn the oven down a touch.
Remove them from the oven when they are nice and crispy. Eat them warm or leave them to cool.
TOP TIP - Use whatever herbs or spices that you like to create unique flavours time after time
