The Spicy Roasted Pea

I get a lot of questions about snacking…

  • When should I?
  • What can I?
  • How often?

So today I thought I’d share with you a great recipe for the dad that loves a crunchy snack. This is a much healthier option than crisps or crackers with cheese. It’s a very simple recipe to follow and you can get the kids involved as well.

It’s a guilt free snack, in moderation, so enjoy!



Spicy Roasted Chickpeas


  • 1 Can of Chickpeas (I use the dried chickpeas you have to soak)
  • Olive oil
  • Paprika
  • Crushed Chilli Flakes
  • Salt


1. Wash the chickpeas and dry them by patting with a paper towel.
2. Place chickpeas in a bowl and drizzle some olive oil. I use extra virgin olive oil.
3. Sprinkle some paprika, chilli flakes and some salt into the bowl (to your taste).
4. Give the chickpeas a mix and lay on a baking tray.
5. Pop in the oven 400F for 30-40 minutes – until golden brown, crunchy (not soft).
