How to Roast Chickpeas:

To start, preheat your oven or air fryer to 400°F (200°C) and open a can of chickpeas. Drain the chickpeas into a colander and rinse them until the water runs clear. Then, pat the chickpeas dry with a clean cloth or some paper towels. Make sure they are as dry as you can get them.

After the chickpeas are dry, place them into a medium bowl and add some olive oil. Then, add your spices. We like to use salt to start. After that, we’ll add nutritional yeast and some garlic powder. We also add some Mrs. Dash no-salt seasoning blend. Feel free to experiment and use flavors that you like.

Line a baking sheet with some parchment paper. Add the spiced chickpeas and layer them evenly on the pan. Bake for 20 minutes in the oven or just 15 minutes in the air fryer. That’s it!
