Oven Roasted Garbanzo Bean Snacks

3 cups canned garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed (aka chickpeas / directions below)

Ingredients

Seasoning:

  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon white miso
  • 1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper about 10 turns
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Set your oven rack in the center position and preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat. Set aside.
  2. Place all of the Seasoning ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir well to combine. This will be a thick paste-like mixture. Set aside for now.
  3. Transfer the rinsed and drained garbanzo beans onto a clean kitchen towel in a single layer. Pull the sides of the towel around the beans and gently roll them around while patting them dry. This will remove some, but not all of the outer skins from the beans, which will help them to dry when baking. Don’t worry about removing all of the skins.
  4. Transfer all of the beans (and the skins!) from the towel to the mixing bowl with the Seasoning mixture. Using a flexible spatula, gently stir the beans to evenly coat them.
  5. Transfer the beans to the baking sheet and spread them out in a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes, stir and then bake for an additional 10 minutes. Stir the beans again and then bake for about 10 more minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!
  6. Turn the oven off and then, without removing the baking sheet from the oven, give it a gentle shake to stir the beans. Leave the baking sheet in the oven and prop the oven door open slightly. Leave the beans inside to cool for 30 minutes. Don’t forget they are in there - set a timer if you have to!
  7. Once the beans are cooled, transfer to an airtight jar or container. Store the beans in your fridge.

Recipe Notes

If your beans get soft while being stored, you can bake them at 350°F (175°C) for about 10 minutes until crispy. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!

These are really yummy to top salad or bowls with, or to eat on their own.
