Gather
  • 2 x 400g tins chickpeas
  • 1 teaspoon cajun spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • salt to taste
Prepare
  1. Drain one tin of chickpeas, leave the other tin whole. Tip them all on to a baking tray.

  2. Sprinkle over the Cajun, cumin, paprika, pepper and salt.

  3. Using your hands (yes, it's messy), mix everything together well.

  4. Roast in the oven on Gas Mark 6 (400f / 200c) for 15-30 minutes.

  5. Cook until the chickpeas are at your desired consistency. If you like them crunchier, leave them in longer, if you prefer them softer, take them out sooner! Enjoy!
