Winter Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

Colder weather calls for oven meals, like roasted chickpeas! It’s an easy way to keep the home warm and have savoury aromas fill your living quarters. Whenever I have the oven on, I often toss in a tray of chickpeas. They are very quick to assemble for cooking and perfect for a snack or added to an entrée like a Buddha bowl. There are also endless roasted chickpea flavour possibilities from sweet to savory. Here is my Winter Spicy Roasted Chickpea recipe. Hope you enjoy!


Note: Choose your preference in crunch, the longer you roast them, the crunchier they become. I like to have crunch with a little softness inside.


Serves: 4-6

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 40-45 minutes



1 can (540mL) chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1 tbsp canola oil

½ tsp chili powder

¼ tsp garam masala

¼ tsp paprika

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

Fresh ground pepper and Kosher salt to taste


Directions for Spicy Roasted Chickpeas:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chickpeas, oil, spices, salt and toss to coat.
  3. Spread chickpeas evenly over a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, rotating them (or shaking the pan gently) around 20 minutes to prevent burning.
