Ingredients List

Serves 1
  • 1 canned chickpeas (drained)
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Heat oven to 180C / 356 F.
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper or silicone non-stick mat.
  3. Drain and rinse the chickpeas, and tip onto a surface covered with kitchen roll to blot them dry.
  4. In a bowl, combine the oil and spices. (If cooking with children they can help measure out the spices and use clean hands to mix up in a owl)
  5. Then add the chickpeas stirring well to coat them completely.
  6. Tip them onto lined baking tray and bake for 35-45 mins moving them around halfway through so they dry evenly and are crunchy.
  7. Once cooled, they can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Experiment with flavours – you could try instead of the olive oil, some soy sauce and miso; or go down the ‘sweeter’ route with cinnamon and ground nutmeg or all spice?
