Roasted chickpeas are your favorite new party snack! This is a great way to utilize chickpeas leftover from using aquafaba

It's every vegan's dilemma - you've discovered how amazing aquafaba is but now your kitchen is overflowing with chickpeas! You could make hummus, but when you're sick of that try these super tasty roasted chickpeas for a crunchy treat and healthier potato chip alternative.

Mix up the flavors and you'll never be bored! You can make them spicy by adding Sriracha and cayenne pepper, or sweet by using cinnamon and sugar. You can also soak them in vinegar prior to roasting to create a salt and vinegar flavor. Happy snacking!

Roasted Chickpeas

  • Duration
  • Cook Time
  • Prep Time
  • 2-4Servings


    • 1 can chickpeas
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1-2 teaspoons paprika
    • 1- 2 teaspoons cumin


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Drain the chickpeas, rinse with water and pat them dry with a dishcloth.

Place the chickpeas in an oven-proof dish and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the spices. Mix well to combine and spread out the chickpeas in a single layer.

Place in the oven for 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven, drizzle with the rest of the olive oil (and more spices if you wish), mix through and return to the oven for another 20 minutes.

The chickpeas should be extremely crunchy and golden brown when done, so if they are still soft on the inside, return them to the oven for a while longer.
