1 (15-oz) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1/2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp ground turmeric
1. Preheat oven to 400F and line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Rinse and drain the chickpeas and place onto paper towel. Add a couple paper towels on top and roll the chickpeas around until completely dry. This helps them crisp up in the oven.
3. Add the chickpeas into a medium mixing bowl and stir in the oil until coated. Add the seasonings and mix well until chickpeas are completely coated.
4. Spread chickpeas onto the baking sheet.
5. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes. Give the pan a gentle shake to stir the chickpeas and bake for another 15-20 minutes, until golden and lightly charred on the bottom.
6. Cool for 5 minutes
