How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400º. Toss the chickpeas with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread on a large baking sheet and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until golden brown and crunchy.
Water is the enemy of crunch, so make sure you remove as much moisture as possible after rinsing the chickpeas. Use paper towels to remove any surface moisture, and if you have time, let them air-dry for 30 minutes before tossing with the oil and baking.
