I can feel my chickpea obsession waning a bit, but before it completely ends I wanted to share another version of roasted chickpeas I tried, just as good as the Crispy Roasted Chickpeas with Moroccan Spices I made about a month ago. Chickpeas with soy sauce isn’t something I’ve ever thought of combining before, but they really did taste great together in these Chickpeas Roasted with Tamari and Sea Salt.

I used Tamari, a smooth tasting natural soy sauce which comes in several types. It can be wheat free, although most Tamari sold in the U.S. contains wheat. If you have the wheat-free kind, use a bit less because it’s more concentrated, and if you need gluten-free be sure to look for that type of Tamari.

You may be thinking that sea salt combined with soy sauce is overkill on the sodium, but I couldn’t resist adding just bit of sea salt to the chickpeas. You can certainly leave out the salt altogether and just use the soy sauce. Since I posted the first recipe for roasted chickpeas, I’ve discovered lots of other bloggers knew about roasted chickpeas before I did, so be sure to check out those links.

Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) Roasted with Tamari and Sea Salt

Chickpeas roasted with Tamari and Sea Salt are about as good as it gets for a snack that’s delicious and good for you!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) or soak and cook dried beans, which would be even better
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2-3 tsp. Tamari or soy sauce (use less for pure Tamari, more for Shoyu type Tamari or regular soy sauce)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt (optional)

Directions:

  1. Rinse canned garbanzo beans well with cold water until no more foam appears, then let drain in colander at least 10 minutes and blot of any remaining water with paper towels.
  2. Toss beans with olive oil and Tamari or soy sauce and let marinate at room temperature 15-30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  4. Arrange chickpeas in a single layer on a non-stick baking sheet, and bake 60 minutes or slightly longer, until chickpeas are dried and crisp and starting to brown. They should be turned a few times while they’re cooking.
  5. The Chickpeas can be served warm or cooled. These are delicious combined with nuts for a snack mix.
