Quick And Easy Oven Roasted Chickpeas

A quick NOT recipe in between my Dacquoise challenge. It is simple and delicious, filling and there is no meat involved. I used canned chickpeas (drained) because it’s all about keeping it simple. This takes about 20 minutes in the oven and you are ready to eat. I recommend mixing the chickpeas with everything a few hours ahead and let them marinate, overnight would work as well, they will be even more tasty. I used what I had on hand to make this and it turned out great. Served simply with some greek yogurt mixed with fresh diced cucumber and dried mint makes a nourishing and super tasty meal.

Roasted Chickpeas

serves 2-3

1 15 oz can of chickpeas rinsed and drained

approximately 10 cherry or baby heirloom tomatoes washed and cut in half

1 shallot peeled and diced

pine nuts a handful or about a scant 1/2 cup

olive oil

approximately 1-2 tbs harissa

dried mint (didn’t measure)

fresh parsley chopped (if I had to guess about 1/4 cup)

1 clove garlic minced or a couple of shakes of garlic powder

salt and pepper

Put everything in a bowl, mix it so it’s combined. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours or overnight. Pre heat oven to 375 and line a small sheet pan with parchment. Pour the chickpea mixture on the parchment and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft and chickpeas are lightly browned.

Serve with greek yogurt mixed with chopped cucumber and dried mint.

  3. Suzanne, I’ll be perfectly honest (and certainly not food-fashionable) and say “You had me at canned!” Cooking for one, it’s so hard not to end up wasting fresh food items. And I feel like I’ve done something unconscionable when I waste food… So I like having quick things with ingredients I can pull from the cabinet. Even better– this sounds easy and truly delicious. I will certainly have to try my hand at this one! Thank you for this lovely idea! Mega hugs my friend.

    • I hate wasting food also, the ease of pulling a can from the cabinet and turning it into something delicious and a bit exotic is satisfying. These chickpeas are so tasty and delicious with the yogurt. It would be great with rice but since I stay away from rice and most carb laden foods having this on it i’s own is delicious. Thank you my friend and have a great day.

  6. Good to have some canned food – ans add home made ” something ” – that makes the difference !

  9. This looks delicious, Suzanne πŸ™‚
    I do always boil my own chickpeas and then freeze them i small portions. So easy to take out and use. This one is for trying.

    • I am short on patience and time so often canned work well, very smart of you to make and freeze. I will try that it ‘s a great idea. Thank you so much Irene.

      • You are welcome Suzanne. I do this to save all the way, it doesn’t take more time to boil a big pot of either beans or chickpeas and it is so easy to use after. Then you can also check, how fresh they are, before using them. Something not possible with the canned ones.
