Simple yet satisfying, these Roasted Chickpeas are a healthy snack which won’t break the bank!


  • 1 x 400g can chickpeas
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary (dried or fresh), or other herbs and spices of your choice
  • ½ green chilli, finely chopped, or some dried chilli flakes (optional)


Heat the oven to 200C°/400°F/gas mark 6.

Drain and wash the chickpeas.

Drizzle the olive oil in an oven-proof dish and add the chickpeas.

Add the salt and rosemary and, if you like a bit of heat, half a chopped green chilli or some chilli flakes.

Mix the chickpeas around in the oil and seasoning with a spoon so the chickpeas are coated.

Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes or until a bit crisp.

Allow to cool a little before serving.
