Spicy Roasted Chicpeas

With the festive season here and all the extra eating and celebrating we do, a healthy tasty snack is always welcome.  Even if you aren’t a chicpea fan, I urge you to try this easy recipe, the crispy light nutty result is well worth the time in the oven.  I would suggest doubling or even tripling this recipe and use any combination of spice you would prefer.

  1. Roasted chickpeas are my favourite snack all the time. Must make a batch soon too.
    Thanks for sharing, Mandy, and have a great day!

  2. I love roasted chickpeas but only discovered them a while ago while doing a kitchen experiment! Roasting them with spices take the chickpeas to a whole other level! These look just stunning & ever so tasty too, Mandy! xxx

    • Maybe we can enjoy a few of these over a glass of wine one day. 😀
      I am incredibly sensitive to animals and can’t watch a kill so hope I am able to help you with an answer about the lions.
      Have a beautiful day Kim. 🙂 xoxoxo

    • Aww Anna, what an honour for you to like my little recipe enough to use as Christmas gifts. We shall have to play in the kitchen when you are here and come up with a few new ideas.

  4. Sorry I’m late – was too busy working out how to quadruple the recipe! I love these but never make them and I really should (and will!). They remind me of holidays in Italy as a child – on the beach sellers used to wander up and down selling honeyed nuts and spicy chickpeas (they are called ceci there – pronounced Chechi) to nibble on between sunbathing and swimming…happy days!
