Crispy Chickpeas with Rosemary

Crispy Chickpeas are a versatile snack that is always a crowd pleaser. This version with rosemary and garlic will be a favorite for sure! 

When it comes to snack time around here, my littlest guy’s absolute favorite snack is…wait for it… Crispy Chickpeas.

I think his obsession with them, and I say obsession because he makes me buy multiple cans at the grocery store whenever we are there, came when I made Crispy Curry Chickpeas. We probably make them at least once a week.

Now, I love curry as much as the next girl, but I am always looking for different flavors for crispy chickpeas. In addition to the curry version, I’ve also tried harissa which has a little bit of a kick. My latest version is these Crispy Chickpeas with Rosemary.

So how did I come to rosemary for this version? By consulting my Flavor Bible of course. My much loved copy has been a staple in my kitchen for several years now. I really don’t know how I got along without it before.

Over the last few months, I have become kind of an expert at Crispy Chickpeas. One of the main things I discovered is that you do not want to overcrowd the pan. I have found that to cook a can of chickpeas you’ll need a 12 inch pan so that you can cook them all in one layer. They are crispier that way. The second tip I have for making crispy chickpeas is to add the seasoning at the end of the cooking. If you add them too soon they will burn and turn bitter.

For these Crispy Chickpeas with Rosemary, I use dried crushed rosemary because I had some in my pantry that I needed to use. You could, of course, use fresh rosemary if you have it on hand. Either will work great in this recipe.

    Hi can you substitute fresh minced garlic for granulated garlic in this recipe? And if so, what is the equivalent amount, when should it be added, and what do you think is the difference in taste? Thanks, this recipe looks delicious

      You could use fresh if you like! I would use one clove and add it in during the last 30 seconds of cooking. The garlic flavor will be a little bit stronger but not much. Hope you enjoy it!
