Roasted Chickpeas with Nacho Seasoning

Any way you serve them, we Vegatopians love our legumes, and after developing this recipe for nacho-seasoned roasted chickpeas (and sampling them multiple times), we decided to commit to this lovely legume, for life. Disclaimer: share with friends and family at your own risk—these roasted chickpeas are addictive!


  • 2 (14 oz/398 mL) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • Salt, as desired


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F.

  2. Mix chickpeas with oil and spices until evenly coated.

  3. Spread chickpeas evenly on a rimmed baking sheet.

  4. Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until crispy (shake pan occasionally during the cooking time to ensure an even roast).

  5. Serve immediately.
