Once I figured out how to make roasted garbanzo beans and how easy it is, I fell in love. Now, this cheesy roasted chickpea recipe is one of my go-to vegan snacks.
How to roast chickpeas
Roasting garbanzo beans in the oven is actually really easy. I prefer to use dried chickpeas that I cook ahead of time, but canned garbanzo beans work well too. I usually bake them at 400°F or 205°C for 20 minutes. Then I flip the chickpeas and bake them for another 20 minutes. However, if you want them extra crispy, you can broil them for the last 5 minutes or so.
How to use roasted Garbanzo Beans
Crispy chickpeas are great for snacking. They’re also delicious on top of your favorite salad or soup. Cheesy roasted chickpeas also add a delightful crunch to your favorite veggie bowl.
How to store roasted chickpeas
You might be wondering how to store roasted chickpeas? I recommend an airtight glass container such as a mason jar or weck jar. If they are really crispy, they will keep just fine at room temperature for 1-2 weeks. After about a week, though, I tend to move them to the fridge.
