Cheesy Roasted Chickpeas
Roasted chickpeas are a salty, crunchy, cheesy, and of course healthy snack you can take with you almost anywhere. Using nutritional yeast makes it vegetarian and vegan-friendly!
No Salt Added Chickpeas
Garlic Salt or Sea Salt
Pour the chickpeas into a sieve and rinse in the sink.
Take a paper towel and gently pat the chickpeas down while they’re still in the sieve to get rid of excess water.
Get two or three plates and place a paper towel down on each of them. Pour the chickpeas onto the plates so that they’re laid flat.
Pat the chickpeas with a paper towel one more time, trying to absorb as much water as you can. Be careful not to pat too hard and crush them.
Go through the chickpeas to remove any skins that fell off.
Let the chickpeas sit on the counter for one hour to dry.
Preheat the oven to 400°.
Pour the chickpeas into a bowl and add two tablespoons of olive oil plus half a teaspoon of garlic salt (or sea salt if preferred).
Gently stir the chickpeas until they’re all coated.
Place the chickpeas onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
*Roast for 35 to 55 minutes. Check every 10 minutes to stir them around and make sure they’re not starting to burn.
Put the chickpeas into a large bowl immediately and add a quarter cup of nutritional yeast, one teaspoon of garlic powder, one teaspoon of onion powder, and one teaspoon of paprika.
Gently stir the chickpeas around in the bowl with a spoon to coat them.
Let them cool for a few minutes and then store them in a glass or plastic container for 3 to 7 days.
*The roasting time depends on how dry the chickpeas are and how your oven works.
