Fried Chickpeas


Chickpeas (I used fried)
Sea salt
Olive oil (or avocado oil)


1. If you’re using fried chickpeas like me, then you’ll need to soak them first (preferably overnight). I also booked mine after to ensure they were clean (given everything going on), but if your’s are soft enough from the soak- then that’s perfect.

2. Strain chickpeas & pat dry.

3. In a frying pan, cover base with thin layer of olive oil (or avocado oil).

4. Add chickpeas to pan without making a double layer. Meaning, they only touch the pan, instead of stacked on one another (I did a few batches to ensure this was possible). 

5. Spice to your liking. I like super spicy stuff, so I was generous here. If you want less, then you do you. 

6. Let them sit for about 5 minutes (you’ll hear them crackle and pop), then give them a little stir with a spatula. 

7. All in all, they’ll probably cook for about 15-20 mins depending how crispy you like them (I like mine a little burnt because I’m a weirdo). 

8. You’ll know when they’re done because they’ll get golden to dark brown. 

9. Always the option to add a little more salt once they’re in the bowl and hand toss. ENJOY!
