crunchy chickpeas

You can make these from ready-to-eat chickpeas, but making these from dried beans makes them extra crunchy!


1 cup dried chickpeas

1 Tbsp baking soda

1 Tbsp olive oil or coconut oil

1/2 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp sea salt

  • Rinse the beans well, moving and composting any broken or discolored ones.

  • Soak overnight, in plenty of water with the baking soda or kombu.

  • Drain, rinse and thoroughly dry the chickpeas. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  • Toss and coat the chickpeas evenly with oil, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt.

  • Bake on a baking tray for 25-35 minutes, or until crunchy. Shake the tray occasionally for even cooking while baking.

  • Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
