After revisiting my Curry & Sriracha Roasted Cauliflower, I thought why not do a batch of chickpeas too. So glad I did because they make a terrific snack for almost anytime of day!

I’m also out to keep the campaign going to, ‘EAT MORE CHICKPEAS!’ Fair enough, and I know the chickens would agree too. I can hear them cheering me on as I type – well not really, but if they knew my plan they surely would.

These roasted chickpeas are yet another great way to add this versatile little bean into your life. Full of protein and fiber, they toast up nicely and take on a variety of flavors making them a great anytime of day snack.

Skip the chips and roast up a batch of chickpeas instead. They are super easy to make, you may even want to double up the recipe as they can go pretty fast.

Try adding these to salads and soups, they make great toppers too. For variety, try these Chipotle Roasted Chickpeas or Crispy Roasted Chickpeas and get creative with the chickpeas!

How To Make Roasted Curry & Sriracha Chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas are so easy to make, it only takes a few steps:

  • Start by drying the chickpea between a kitchen towel and remove any lose skins.
  • Next add the chickpeas, oil, curry, sriracha, garlic powder and salt to a medium size bowl and combine well to coat.
  • Place chickpeas in a single layer on a roasting pan or rimmed cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, silpat (<affiliate links), or lightly greased with oil.
  • Bake for about 40-45 minutes stirring every 10 minutes or so until chickpeas have a nice roasted look and are crispy.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

How To Store Roasted Chickpeas To Keep Them Crispy

Keep your chickpeas crispy by storing them in a container that lets air flow through. If stored in an airtight container they will soften up and lose their crunchiness.

  1. Nice recipe! Do you store them at room temperature? Thank you.

      Yes, we store them at room temp. Enjoy!

  2. These sound delicious! If I am making a large batch to eat throughout the week do I need to refrigerate them?

    1. Julie | The Simple Veganista says:

      No, just keep them in a jar or bowl on the counter. You may like to keep the cover ajar. No need to refrigerate. Enjoy, they are so good!

  3. RonNasty64 says:

    I’ve tried almost a dozen different roasted chickpeas snacks, and yours is the first I want to make again. I’m really bummed out right now because I don’t have any more chickpeas at home right now, Thanks for the recipe.

  4. Patrice Bagél says:

    I am confused as to how I would be able to get a heaped teaspoon of oil.

    Any help on this would be much appreciated.

  5. This seems to have a high sodium content. Where does it come from?

    1. Julie | The Simple Veganista says:

      I checked the nutrition info I had inputted and the salt was not correct. I have corrected it using 1/8 teaspoon salt. Thanks you for bringing it to my attention. Cheers!
