Recipe: Roasted Chickpeas – 2 Flavours: Hot Sauce and Balsamic Tamari

I LOVE CHICKPEAS! Since going plant-based, I have learned to love beans, and chickpeas are my current favourite! We keep it simple with our roasted chickpeas by using the same base recipe with slight variations to switch up the flavour. These crisp roasted chickpeas are delicious as a salad-topper, mixed into soup or whole grains, or even as a tasty snack.

Roasted Chickpeas - Hot Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (or 2 cups cooked)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce (+ more for topping-optional *see note)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Cover baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. Put chickpeas in bowl. Add cornstarch and nutritional yeast and mix well.
  3. Add hot sauce and toss gently.
  4. Place chickpeas on baking sheet.
  5. Bake 30 minutes. Flip and bake another 10-15 minutes.

Note:Even though these chickpeas have hot sauce on them, we don’t find them to be super spicy. If you’d like to up the spice level, toss the chickpeas in some additional hot sauce after baking.
