  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of smoked paprika
  • Pinch of garlic salt

  2. Drain the chickpeas and pat them dry with some kitchen paper.

  3. In a bowl, toss the chickpeas with the olive oil, salt, garlic salt and paprika.

  4. Spread into a baking tray and cook for 35 minutes until browned and crunchy. Be careful in the last ten minutes or so not to let them burn.
