Cajun spice (1 tsp)
Garlic powder (1 tsp)

Recipe

Step 1.

First, drain a can of cooked chickpea by pouring it into a wire strainer. Wash them well and shake them enough until they are free of their crusts. This method is easier than extracting shells one by one. If you have raw chickpeas, you can boil them for a long time until become soft instead.

Step 2.

Set your oven to 200 degrees. Let it preheat. In the meantime, you can continue to prepare. Get a baking sheet. Lay parchment paper on it

Step 3.

Put the cleaned chickpeas in a large mixing bowl or ziplock bag. Pour all the spices, oil and ingredients over it and mix well without crushing the chickpeas. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. And voila! Enjoy your healthy popcorn.

Tip: Take out the baking sheet when you are halfway through the baking time. Shake it gently and put it back in the oven. In this way, you will ensure that they bake evenly.

Tip: Make sure the chickpeas don’t have any skin left in them and dry them well before seasoning. They shouldn’t even stay moist. Otherwise, they may crack inside the oven.
