If you haven’t discovered Roasted Chickpeas yet this is the perfect time of year to give them a try. They’re little, tasty, crunchy, salty, balls of goodness that are packed with protein and fiber AND they make the perfect snack for any party or gathering you might be headed to in the next couple of weeks!

I’m still in Jersey for the rest of the month but wanted to be sure to share this video with you  before the holidays pass!

I’m really looking forward to the New Year so I can get back in my kitchen and experiment with some new Clean & Delicious ideas!

Happy Holidays!!

Roasted Chickpeas w/ Indian Spices

Yield: 2 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 cans organic garbanzo beans
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


Preheat oven to 400.

Drain and rinse the beans under some cold water.  Place beans on a kitchen towel and roll them and pat them until they are completely dry.

In a small bowl, toss together curry powder, garam masala, ginger, and salt.

Place dry garbanzo beans in a large bowl and toss with olive oil.  Sprinkle spice mixture over the beans and toss until all the garbanzo beans are evenly coated with the spices.

Toss onto a rimmed baking sheet and bake for about forty five minutes or until the garbanzo beans are nice and crunchy.

Toss into a serving bowl and enjoy!

    I’m with Sheri on this one. Maybe I cooked mine too long? They were crunchy, really crunchy and probably a little darker than the video.

    Can’t wait to try this recipe. Do they need to be refrigerated after roasting

    I love your videos because by the end, I’m always saying to myself — “I could do that!”. Your recipes and demos are awesome.

    I have loved almost every single recipe on here, but I must have done something wrong with these. They smelled divine while baking, but they tasted like dirt. What did I do wrong?

    Jane – Thanks so much! Hope you enjoy this addictive snack;)

    Kalyn – Yes!!!! They are!

    Mandi – Thanks! You make me feel the same way after I watch your workout videos.

    Monique – I usually keep them on the counter in an air proof container.

    Sheri and Christine – Oh no!! I’m not exactly sure what went wrong but if I had to guess it would have to be cooking time. Try reducing it by ten minutes or so and see what happens… they really are too good not to give it another shot!! Would love to hear back what happens…

    Dani! These were so tasty! I’ve been meaning to make them for a while and I’m so glad I did! They are hard to put down, so I only made one cans worth. Yum!

      Liz – So glad you liked them! And I agree, they are ADDICTIVE!

    Hi Dani,
    Might you have other recipes for flavoring these other than Indian spices? Thank you for any tips!

    Even though I overcooked them and they came out a bit too hard, my 5-year-old could not stop eating these. I’m looking forward to trying this recipe again. Thanks!

    LOVED this! I’m fairly new to eating clean and made these for my book club friends and they were a hit. My 13 year old son couldn’t resist the either. Thanks so much!!

    Strange, I can just see the picture instead of a video for this recipe! :(

    Hi Dani! How many cups worth of chickpeas are in your two cans of chickpeas? I’m going to cook them myself as opposed to buying them in cans :)

      Dani — January 29, 2015 @ 9:25 am

      It’s probably about 3 cups of chickpeas.

    Hi Dani, I can’t seem to find garam marasala spice, so far I’ve been to walmart and kroger. Could you suggest other spices that might be good for this?

      You could stick with some cumin and garlic powder! That would be delish.
