Crispy Shawarma Spiced Chickpeas Recipe

April 11, 2019

Want a snack that’s crunchy, salty, easy to take on the go and still healthy? This roasted chickpeas recipe is quick to make and packed with flavor.

A crunchy, salty snack doesn’t have to mean unhealthy. You can make your own roasted chickpeas at home as a great snack for adults and kids alike. They also make a great appetizer or addition to a tapas plate.

The key to making chickpeas really crispy is to drain, rinse, and dry the chickpeas really well before baking. The less moisture you have going into the oven, the crispier they will be overall.

We’ve got a crispy chickpea snack recipe you will want to make every week. You can change the spice combinations in infinite ways and use them to top salads or soups, or add extra protein to meals.

Spicy roasted chickpea ingredients

Chickpeas

Chickpeas are a great source of plant-based protein and soluble fiber, which can improve gut health. They also boast micronutrients like folate, iron, phosphorus, copper, and manganese.

Spice blend

The flavor-packed spices on these chickpeas aren’t just for taste. They actually have a range of health benefits: Cinnamon promotes balanced blood sugar regulation, turmeric and ginger have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, cardamom is a great antioxidant, and coriander contains borneol and linalool which improve digestion.

Avocado oil

Avocado oil is rich in oleic acid, which some research suggests has beneficial effects in inflammatory-related diseases. It also has a high smoking point, meaning it can be used at high temperatures before it begins producing smoke and oxidizes, releasing harmful compounds.
