Baked Rosemary Parmesan Chickpeas

Baked Rosemary Parmesan Chickpeas (click through for recipe) I hated chickpeas as a child. Of course, I hadn’t actually tasted them, but I remember that my dad loved to put them on top of his salads and I just thought they looked too weird to actually taste good. It wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I dared to try them and realized that they not only tasted nothing like I thought they would, but they were actually delicious! Since then I’ve been eating them lots of ways (including on salads!), but this way of preparing them is my particular favorite at the moment:

Baked Rosemary Parmesan Chickpeas (click through for recipe) You’ll want to eat these the same day that you make them since they don’t keep well, but I think once you taste them, it won’t be a problem to finish them off that day. I added more rosemary to my version because I like it to really be a stand-out flavor in the snack, but you can adjust the ratios to your liking. What do you think? Are these worthy of a snack night feature in your house soon? xo. Laura

  • They aren’t as crunchy as a wasabi pea (certainly not going to break a tooth), so I would describe them as “lightly crunchy” with a semi soft center if that makes sense…they are good though!

    Laura 🙂

  • since i’ve ‘matured,’ lol, chickpeas have grown on me. i don’t know what the heck was my problem as a wee one. anyways, with rosemary? sounds like a slam dunk. thanks for sharing!

  • These look so good! But chickpeas don’t really agree with me :/ Maybe I will try this out with almonds or something instead 🙂

  • What a great way to cook chickpeas! I usually just make hummus, but I have fresh rosemary in my garden.

  • I never ate chickpeas as a child, but when I started eating hummus and making homemade versions, I became obsessed with them! I haven’t tried many recipes for roasted chickpeas, but the rosemary and parmesan combination sounds lovely! A great summer (light) snack 😉
