  • 2 whole cans chickpeas
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Salt


  • Rinse chickpeas in a colander.
  • Soak chickpeas in cold water for 5 minutes.
  • Rinse and drain again.
  • Dry lightly with a clean towel or paper towel. Be careful you don't smash chickpeas.
  • Spread evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 30 minutes. Stir gently half-way through cooking time to avoid burning.
  • Turn oven off and let sit for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Taste for doneness. You want a dry chickpea.
  • Place in a bowl.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and stir. Add seasoning and stir again. Place back on baking sheet.
  • Return for oven for 5-10 minutes.
  • Let cool.
  • Store in an airtight container.
