I love your recipes too but this morning you had a good show but can't find the recipe for roasted pepper soup or strawberry and spinach salad. I did find the edamame and apple salad and I can't wait to try it. Thanks firstname.lastname@example.org
Roasted Chickpeas with Garlic and Sage
Roasted Chickpeas with Garlic and Sage
Roasted and crunchy, savory chickpeas make a wonderful nutty treat. This recipe is a perfect blend of textures and flavors. Have these on hand during cocktail hour, for picnic snacks, or dropped into a salad. The roasted garlic and toasty sage are equally delicious. So, for a change, when you think nuts, think chickpeas!
2 c. (or 2 15 oz. cans) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2-3 T. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, whole not peeled (optional 2-3 cloves minced)
3-4 (or more) sage leaves
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 425.
In a cast iron skillet, heat the oil. Add the chickpeas and the garlic, and sauté for a minute or two. Be sure the beans are well coated with the oil, then add the sage, and remove the pan from the stove.
Place the skillet in the oven and roast, giving it a shake every so often. Roast until the chickpeas begin to turn brown, about 15-20 minutes, or longer, depending upon your oven. Remove the pan from the oven and set aside to cool a bit.
When the chickpeas are still hot, you can sprinkle with a little additional olive oil or your favorite spice. I like chipotle or curry powder, but basically whatever you like will work. I usually just stick with a little kosher salt. A tiny squeeze of fresh lemon is also a nice addition.
I have long been a fan of roasting chickpeas for snacks, and this iron skillet method is by far the best for getting your chickpeas nice and crispy. I improvised this recipe with what I had available, which was dried rubbed sage and pre-minced garlic I had in the fridge. It was delicious! I really enjoyed the little crusty pieces of garlic and sage. Next time, I may add the garlic halfway through the cooking process so I do not char the garlic while getting the chickpeas well done. Try adding a little chili powder- a wonderful compliment!
Just finished making this baby and I must say, this is by far the quickest and easiest snack I've cooked so far! And dangerously addictive. No nonsense and straight forward, and the taste is an absolute beauty. I've added a teaspoon of raw sugar with paprika and five spices and it's salty, spicy with a hint of sweetness. I love it! Thanks Toni!
I saw your show yesterday and made these last night. OMIGOD, they are so yummy! I think I have replaced my tortilla chip addiction with these savory snacks. I am going to try the cauliflower/squash recipe this afternoon and while I have the oven on, I might as well make more of the chickpeas. I am not a vegetarian, but if I keep making your delicious recipes, I might end up one, at least a few nights a week. Thanks, Toni!
This sounds wonderful. Saw your excellent show for the first time tonight - can't wait to try this and others from the Garbonzo episode - looking forward to more episodes! merci beaucoup - gratie mille
Hi Karin, These should be stored in the fridge. They may be re-heated. Beans unless they are dry, should always be stored in the fridge and really any fruit or vegetable cooked, especially cooked in oil or opened from a can should also be refrigerated.
Toni, you make it all look easy and delicious. Your show is a godsend. My 14 year old granddaughter is a vegan and I can now finally make dishes that not only she will love but the rest of the family can enjoy, too. You go, girl!
Yes, you would prepare the dried chickpeas just as you would if you were cooking with them, soaked and boiled. Once they are tender, they are ready to be dressed and baked. Toni
Can you use dried chickpeas and would you soak and cook them for a couple of hours before proceeding
These chick peas are pretty addictive...I can easily go through a serving all by myself too...thank goodness they're healthy! I'm glad you enjoyed the recipe and thanks so much for writing Sarah . Toni
This recipe is great! I really wanted a great chickpea recipe like this to have around as nibbles for guests and family...but I ended up eating it all in one sitting :) thank you! Your show is great.
