Spicy Crispy Baked Chickpeas Instructions
- Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will prevent the chickpeas from sticking to the pan while baking.
- Drain and rinse the chickpeas from the can, then place them on a clean kitchen towel or paper towels. Gently pat them dry to remove any excess moisture. This step is essential to achieve crispy baked chickpeas.
- Transfer the dried chickpeas to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Drizzle the olive oil over the chickpeas and toss them until each one is coated evenly.
- Now, it’s time to add the flavorful spices. Sprinkle the garlic powder, chili flakes, paprika, salt, and pepper over the chickpeas. Mix everything thoroughly, ensuring that the spices are well-distributed among the chickpeas.
- Once the chickpeas are coated in oil and spices, spread them out in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. This will allow them to crisp up evenly during baking.
- Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the chickpeas for about 20 minutes or until they become golden brown and crispy. Make sure to shake the pan gently or give the chickpeas a stir halfway through the baking time to ensure even cooking.
- When the chickpeas are ready, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Be careful; they might be addictive!
- Once cooled, transfer the Spicy Crispy Baked Chickpeas to a serving bowl or an airtight container for snacking later. Enjoy them as a standalone snack, toss them on salads, or use them as a crunchy topping for soups.
Note: Feel free to customize the spices according to your taste preferences. If you prefer a milder version, reduce the amount of chili flakes or omit them altogether. Conversely, if you want more heat, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to intensify the spiciness.
These Spicy Crispy Baked Chickpeas are the ultimate guilt-free snack that won’t disappoint. Their crunchy texture and bold flavors will keep you coming back for more.
So, go ahead and whip up a batch of these delightful chickpeas for your next movie night, party, or afternoon munching. Enjoy!
