When you roast chickpeas at a high temperature, they become golden and crisp on the exterior and buttery on the interior. They’re as addictive as french fries, and I’ve been known to eat the entire batch standing at the stove straight from the baking sheet.
Begin by draining and rinsing the chickpeas.
Transfer the chickpeas to a foil-lined baking sheet and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Roast for ten minutes, until golden and crisp.
That’s all there is to it. Enjoy!
