Indian Roasted Chickpeas + Giveaway

A bold and crunchy snack that is waistline-friendly. Roasted Chickpeas are my new best friend as we close in on summer vacation.

Swimsuit season is just weeks away… are you ready?

I am. Bahahahahahahaha!!

Ok, maybe not, but I’m getting there.

I have this habit of  “chubbying up” from October 31st through February 14th, only to have to work it off all spring.

What can I say, I love holiday foods with a passion.

Healthy "Indian" Roasted Chickpeas | ASpicyPerspective.com #snack #healthy #chickpeas

This time of year, I’m on the hunt for light, protein-packed snacks that can satisfy a salty junk food craving. Yet those are hard to come by.

I find using exotic spice blends in healthy snack options, makes them much more intriguing.

Take chickpeas, for instance.

Sure they’re healthy, but they aren’t so great straight out of the can (or boiling water.)

However, spicy roasted chickpeas are an entirely different story.

Add a little curry powder and garam masala, then roast until crisp and you have just added serious wow-factor to plain-jane chickpeas.

How to make Roasted Chickpeas

Have you tried roasted chickpeas?

They’re like crunchy little Corn Nuts, but so much better for you.

You can pop them all through movie night without any guilt. They also make a great addition to lunch boxes, or to keep in the glove compartment for road trip snack-attacks.

Folks, roasted chickpeas are my new favorite snack.

This particular “Indian” blend of spices really makes the roasted chickpeas sing with ferocious flavor.

I used J.R. Watkins spices in this recipe and noticed a significant difference in zesty appeal. J.R Watkins might be best known for their baking extracts, natural remedies, and personal care items, like baby oil and hand cream.

But don’t forget about the incredible line of natural spices they’ve been providing for over 100 years. J.R. Watkins spices have a high concentration of essential oil, meaning the flavors are intense.

Intense spices are a good thing.

You can find all J.R. Watkins herbs, spices and seasoning blends here.

Now go roast some Indian-spiced chickpeas… and while they’re baking why not buy yourself a new swimsuit online!

Yield: 3 cups

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Roasted Chickpeas

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans (3 cups) cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Tb. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. J.R. Watkins Curry Powder
  • 1 tsp. J.R. Watkins Garam Masala
  • 1/4 tsp. J.R. Watkins Garlic Powder
  • 1/8 tsp. J.R. Watkins White Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. Rinse the chickpeas and dry thoroughly with a paper towel. Then remove any loose skins.
  3. Pour the dried chickpeas out onto the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Shake the pan to coat the chickpeas in oil.
  4. Sprinkle the curry powder, garam masala, garlic powder, white pepper and salt over the chickpeas and then shake the pan again to evenly distribute the spices.
  5. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, then toss and mix the chickpeas and return to the oven for another 15 minutes. **If you want your chickpeas to be extra crunchy, turn the oven off and leave the chickpeas in the oven for another 15-20 minutes.
  6. Remove and cool before eating. Store in an air-tight container.

    First of all, your timing couldn’t be better! My hubby just finished a spice rack for me yesterday. I’d try to come up with a use for the cinnamon sticks because I’ve never used them before! Maybe waffles…

    I love the look of JR Watkins spice jars… they seem kind of “retro” to me! And I love spiced, roasted chickpeas… I don’t make them often enough! But considering the day I know is coming at work on Monday, this might be good to take along! But the first thing I would make? Indian curry….

    I have seen other versions of roasted chickpeas and too often thought, ‘Meh.’ But Indian spices…OK, you got me with that one. I LOVE Indian food and these I will make, very soon…like today!

I’m also a huge fan of Watkins extracts for my cookies, but it never occurred to me to try the spices. I will order pronto! Now I’ve gotta try those kale chips I’m hearing so much about!
