There are two types of people in the world: those who are okay with raw chickpeas, and those who are not. I am the latter. Therefore, here is my recipe for actually crispy chickpeas. The trick is to bake the seasoning-less chickpeas FIRST, then add seasoning. Keep reading for the full recipe!



  • organic canned chickpeas
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • smoked paprika
  • italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp olive oil


1. Drain and rinse organic canned chickpeas and add to sheet pan. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes WITH NOTHING ON IT!

2. Add baked, plain chickpeas to a bowl with 2 tbsp of balsamic glaze (i used storebought) and 1 tsp of Italian seasoning.

3. bake for 10 more minutes. Cool & enjoy!


For the rest of the meal, cut 1/2 avocado, some tomato wedges and chop fresh basil and assemble over greens. Drizzle balsamic glaze, olive oil, pink salt& pepper, and italian seasoning. Add chickpeas. Take a pic. Send to me.
