Ingredients
  

  • 1 can (19 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • About 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Add the strained and rinsed chickpeas to a bowl and pour about 1 cup of white vinegar over top, just enough to completely cover the chickpeas. Soak in the vinegar for 15 minutes then strain off the vinegar (do not rinse).
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the strained chickpeas between 2 pieces of paper towel (or a clean tea towel) and dab off the excess moisture.
  • Once fairly dry, add the chickpeas to a baking sheet. Remove any large pieces of the chickpeas skins that may have come off while drying them. Do not add any oil to the pan yet!
  • Bake for 7 minutes, then swirl the chickpeas around on the hot pan for about 30 seconds to release the steam (my best trick to get super crispy chickpeas!).
  • Add 1 tbsp of oil and mix to coat the chickpeas, returning to the oven to bake for an additional 25-28 minutes.
  • Once they are done baking toss the spices, salt and pepper onto the pan while it’s still hot and mix to coat. Add more salt to taste if needed.
  • Store uncovered at room temperature for up to 4 days. Enjoy!
