The Crispiest Chickpeas
The herby crispy chickpeas are the cherry on top of this recipe. They provide a boost of plant protein, a delicious nutty flavour, and a ‘crunch’ that you just can’t beat. I’m obsessed with roasting veggies. It’s a running joke in my house that if you stood still for long enough I’d probably crisp you up in the oven too. But it really does add a whole new exciting flavour and texture element.
Remove the chickpea skins. I know, I know, this sounds like a massive faff. But I promise it’s super easy to do, and once you see the difference it makes you won’t ever go back. It’s not essential but if you do find chickpeas bloat you removing the skins def helps with that!
Just drain and rinse your chickpeas, then roll them between a few pieces of kitchen towel. This will remove the bulk of the skins, and you can either leave them as is, or remove the skins of any stragglers by rolling the chickpeas between your fingers.
