Ingredients

  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  • Place chickpeas in a strainer and run cold water over them for several minutes. Then, pinch off any of the skins that come off easily.
  • Transfer chickpeas to a surface covered with a few paper towels. Let sit for 1-2 hours, or until dry.
  • Remove remaining skins by rolling them gently over the paper towels.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss chickpeas with olive oil and spread out on a 9x13 or similar sized rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, then toss the chickpeas. Let bake for an additional 10-12 minutes, or until chickpeas have browned.
  • While chickpeas are cooking, mix together chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt, cumin, paprika, sugar, and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
  • Remove from oven and toss with lemon juice. Then, while still warm, toss with spice mixture. Stir in parsley before serving.
