Cajun Roasted Chickpeas
These Cajun Roasted Chickpeas are spicy, super easy and a super tasty snack!
- 2 (15 oz) cans garbanzo beans , (also known as chickpeas)
- Cooking spray
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
- ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans and then spread them in a single layer on a clean dish towel. Pat dry with another towel and allow them to sit and dry for another 5 minutes. Transfer the chickpeas to a single layer on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, shaking the pan (or stirring the chickpeas) every 10 minutes.
While the chickpeas are roasting, combine all the spices listed and stir until well mixed.
Remove the chickpeas from the oven and spray them with cooking spray to coat. Immediately transfer the chickpeas to a mixing bowl while still hot and sprinkle the seasonings over the top. Mix together until chickpeas are well coated.
Spread the seasoned chickpeas back onto the baking sheet and return them to the oven for another 10-15 minutes. Turn the oven off and leave the chickpeas in for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
