I made hummous today with the rest of my kilo of chickpeas that I hadn't frozen or made into cake. I didn't have any lemon, and I'm sure my colleagues are sick of me stinking of garlic so I liquidised a tin of tomatoes and added some stock powder, chilli powder and the chick peas. It's quite nice for a change but I don't think you can beat the old lemon juice and garlic combo.

OMG poor Emma, how can you be gone of hummus?!

May 12th, 2007, 07:27 PM
it's okay!! i had the manky lurgy sniffles and the appetite went a little haywire :confused:

i made baba ghanoouj (hahaha just for the name), and that with some toasted pitta bread made me rethink the hummouslessness of my situation, so i went and made a batch and "aaay!" i'm back on track now. :D

why did i quote this...ehrr..foxytina..absolutely AGES ago, i put a recipe type thing up on here..like in the recipe thread bit maybe..for this iranian stuff my mum made called baharat.it's like a load of spices ground and is just ace..anyhow i sometimes roast/bake chickpeas with this stuff on..mind you only need the scoddiest bit..you;'re using a tin?? drain and bang in a bowl with little bit of oil and something like half a teaspoon of this stuff and a tiny bit of saly..roll it all round and roast them up till crunchitty..they're sooo nice..spicy and stuff.

can use just other stuff..um...would think most spicy things would be compatible? paprika too..oh, that stuff is just ace. :)

I have never made them either, but I believe that you just soak them as normal and them coat them in oil and put them in the oven (sorry I don't know temperatures or time). I like them plain salted but I have seen them with chilli.

Here's a recipe from "How It All Vegan!":


2 cups cooked or canned chickpeas (garbanzos)
1-2 tsp seasoning (cumin, chili powder, cayenne, garlic, curry powder) or
whatever your favorite seasonings.
1 tbsp oil of choice

Preheat oven to 400F (not sure what that is in celcius.) In a medium bowl, toss together the chickpeas and desired seasoning in the oil. Stir together well and spread out onto a large baking sheet. Bake for 45-60 minutes, flipping after 20 minutes. Let cool before serving. Makes 2 cups.

I haven't made this yet. So, if you make it soon...let me know how it turns out.

thanks everyone!!!

this will be a really good snack to curb my chip addiction lol, and its high in protein so i think ill make these tomorrow!

ill post after i make them bugaboo!

Please let me know how they go Tina, and what seasonings you use. I've had a can of chickpeas sitting in the cupboard for a while now and I just haven't felt like eating them. These sound quick and easy though and I could take them to work for a snack.

definitely i will. but i have heard that even in an air tight container these get mushy after a while, so i will tell you how long they stay crunchy for also. i was reading recipes online and some people that reviewed it said to only make what you will eat each time because they got mushy again. these do sound so delicious as a snack though.

Sep 5th, 2007, 09:13 AM
Ahhhh shit ok. Thanks for the tip! Look forward to hearing how they turn out.

I made this before, it was pretty good - http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/roastedchickpeaswith_77265.shtml

I love the chickpea nibblers from How it all Vegan. Make sure you cook them long enough though, otherwise they'll be crispy on the outside and soft in the middle which is really gross lol. I don't know about them getting mushy after a few days. Mine have never lasted longer than the day I made them lol.

I have had the ones that you just buy from the Asian shops and I am pretty sure they are uncooked before you roast them - and they are not mushy at all - They arn't as crunchy as nuts, but definately not mushy.

Sep 7th, 2007, 12:29 AM
sticky, i meant they go mushy after a few hours of baking them. not right away when theyre fresh baked. ive read they dont keep well.

im going to make these tonight!

i used onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, curry powder, and a little bit of hot sauce and oil. i mixed them up with my hands and will bake them at 400 degrees for 40-60 minutes. im going to add some nutritional yeast at the end to make them more nutritous.

Sep 7th, 2007, 02:06 AM
omg these are soooooooooooo good. ughhhhhhhhhhhhh. i love these!!!!

i roasted them at 400 degrees for 40 minutes. i had to add a little extra curry powder after they were cooked because they didnt taste curryish enough. oh my god these are sooooooooooo good.

does anyone know if you can roast peas? i used to get these roasted peas that were indian and they were so good.

Sep 7th, 2007, 02:39 AM
Just how crunchy are they? Can you liken them to anything? Are they teeth breakers?!

Sep 7th, 2007, 03:08 AM
theyre crunchy like chips/crisps i think. a little crispier. a little less crunchy than corn nuts (if you have those there)

theyre damn delicious. my god. i could eat these all day.

roxy i ate them all before i remembered i was going to save some to see how long they stayed crunchy for LOL so ill write when i do it next time. which i think will be pretty quick because they were so good!!
