Before roasting, the dried and soaked beans are not cooked. Rinsing and drying chickpeas (both canned and dried after soaking) is the most critical step in roasting chickpeas successfully. Rinsing the canned chickpeas removes approximately 30%-40% of the salt.
They're an excellent low-calorie, nutrient-dense snack that's high in fiber. Several factors influence whether they become mushy when roasted: the type of chickpeas (dry and soaked overnight or dried), the degree to which they are dried before roasting, and only a little amount of oil used. Too much may result in soggy chickpeas or a smoky mess.
Soaking your own chickpeas the night before was significantly better than buying canned ones. Soaking your own beans saves money. The amount of beans you get from a pound of dried beans is three times what you get from a pound of canned beans. However, the convenience of utilizing canned beans outweighs the disadvantages. It's important to know that the dried and soaked beans aren't cooked.
