These Crispy Chickpeas take minutes to make and are an addicting and delicious snack, side dish, or topping for salads and soups!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas
  • avocado oil
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Drain, rinse, and dry the chickpeas.
  2. Heat a thin layer of oil in the bottom of a skillet pan over medium heat.
  3. Add the chickpeas and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chickpeas are brown and crispy, about 15 minutes.

Notes

  1. I love using my cast iron skillet to make this crispy chickpeas recipe.
  2. I prefer to use avocado oil because it has a neutral flavor and a higher smoke point.
  3. Make sure to use a big enough pan so that the chickpeas aren’t overcrowded. They won’t brown and crisp as well if they are overlapping and crowded in the pan. A 10-inch or larger skillet works best.
