Geröstete Kichererbsen

Similiar to sugared almonds, just without the sugar, instead with spices and a little salt. And if you replace the almonds with chickpeas, you will get them: roasted chickpeas. 

Roasted chickpeas are ideal, if you like it crunchy, sugar-free and almost fat-free
for a snack or as topping to salad, vegetables and soups.

Roasted ChickpeasI prefer to take soaked, uncooked chickpeas, because the chickpeas become then quicker crisp.
But you also can use canned chickpeas, it just takes a little longer.

(Snack for 2)

  • 300 g dried chickpeas, soaked for 12 hours OR canned chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp oil (olive or rapeseed oil) 
  • 1 tbsp of your preferred spices or dried herbs (e.g. rosemary, curry, chili, cumin, wasabi)
  • salt

Rinse the soaked or canned chickpeas well with fresh water, and dry with a cloth.

Preheat the oven to 180° C.

Mix the chickpeas with the oil. Spread on a baking tray and bake for ca. 40 minutes. Once in a while turn the chickpeas for an evenly tan.

Once the chickpeas are crisp, mix with the preferred spices/herbs and salt. My favourite is rosemary and salt.  Geröstete Kichererbsen
