Mediterranean Roasted Chickpea Salad

Hey foodie friends, 

Chickpeas, Lentil, Beans all make delicious recipes.  It seriously does not get any simpler than this Mediterranean Roasted Chickpea Salad recipe.  A few ingredients and you have a healthy meal that can be eaten hot or cold.  I waited until it cooled off and then ate the wholeee bowl!! 🙂  I think most enjoy eating chickpeas rather than beans, not sure why that is.   But if you know let me know why people prefer eating one more than the other.   I have no special plans for the weekend except for maybe doing a lot of cooking.  Lookout Kitchen here I comeeeee!!   Would love to hear your feedback if you try out this unique  Mediterranean Roasted Chickpea Salad.  Great side dish for any dinner table. 🙂

We finally had some beautiful summer breeze come our way these past two days.  We are past mid-August and heading towards the end and I haven’t a clue where Summer went.  So, far 2020 has been one strange year!!  

Have a great weekend everyone!!

  1. This sounds so delicious and so easy. 2 of my most favourite things! Another plus is that all the ingredients are usually already on hand, perfect! Thanks Sophie 🙂

  2. Yummy! I love chickpeas! My sister and I normally make chickpea salad and add boiled eggs to it. I’ll have to try it this way.

  3. I love to roast chickpeas for a crunchy snack! 😊

  4. This sounds very interesting, but could you please provide some clue as to how long to cook and at what temperature??

      Hi Jean, Thank you for your kind comment. You will need about 15 min of prep time and 30 min to cook. The temp is 180 C or 375 F.

  5. Hi Sophie, gotta try this. My wife is from Morocco and loves chick peas. About how much olive oil do you use? Thanks a bunch for sharing your recipes.

      Hi Joe, Morocco they have a fabulous cuisine. I have a very good friend from Morocco and I know their cuisine very well. In regards to the recipe this varies others like more olive oil and others don’t so I tend to leave that to everyone preference. I usually add about a 4 or 5 tablespoons. If you need any help let me know and Thank you so much for you kind comment. Sophie 🙂
