Spicy Roasted Chickpea Recipe Tips

There aren’t loads you need to be aware of when making this spicy chickpea recipe. One thing I will say is to make sure you drain the chickpeas first. They need to be fully roasted in the oven so you want to make sure they’re not super wet when they go in the oven.

I also find that if you don’t drain the chickpeas first the oil and spices don’t stick to them and then you’re left with soggy chickpeas and not this amazing spicy roasted chickpea recipe! You want to also make sure that all the chickpeas are covered in spicy spices. If you want these to be a little less spicy, add less spice.

You also want to make sure you’re using a non-stick baking tray with these spicy chickpeas. As they dry out they’re more likely to stick to the tray so make sure you get a non-stick tray for the best results when making this spicy roasted chickpea recipe!
