How to Roast Fresh Garbanzo Beans?

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.

  • Drain and rinse your chickpeas before starting. Preheat your oven to 425°.

  • Gently pat the chickpeas dry with a kitchen towel once they have been spread on it. It is critical that the chickpeas are completely dry before tossing them with olive oil; otherwise, they will not crisp up in the oven. Remove any loose skins from the outside of the chickpeas and set them aside.

  • Place them on a baking tray coated with parchment paper and drizzle them with olive oil and hefty pinches of salt before baking for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. 

  • Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and roast until crispy. Start checking between 20 to 30 minutes for them to get crisp and golden-brown in appearance.

  • Remove the chickpeas from the oven and, while they are still warm, mix them with a few pinches of your favorite seasonings.
