Roasted Organic Chickpeas with Homemade Montreal Steak Seasoning

Roasted Chickpeas -

If you are the type that likes to snack on crunchy flavorful treats from time to time then I have something for you to try!  I found myself snacking on these over at my grandparent’s house today and when I realized what they were, I just had to share it on my blog.

You can find chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) either dried or in the can.  For this recipe, my mother soaked her dried beans over night but  if you are looking for a quick snack then use what you have on hand.  The Eden Organic brand does not use BPA in the lining of their cans so I feel it is a safe alternative if time is limited.


  • Chickpeas – 4 cups (or 2 cans)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of oil (I’d suggest organic olive oil or avocado oil)
  • Spices of choice


Heat oven to 375°F. Rinse and drain chickpeas and transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle oil over the beans and mix with your hands until evenly coated.  Sprinkle spices of choice over chickpeas and mix again, then spread beans onto a baking sheet into an even layer. Lining the baking sheet with parchment paper makes clean up a snap. Bake for 40-50 minutes, could be longer depending on the oven/desired crunchiness. Stir chickpeas every 10 minutes after the 30 minute mark.

This is a snack the entire family will enjoy!

Homemade Montreal Steak Seasoning

My grandma made this recipe she found over at Foodie With Family’s blog and it turned out great! Here is their recipe:


  • 4 tablespoons salt (I used Kosher)
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon dehydrated onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon dehydrated garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary leaves
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seed


Blend for several seconds till well ground. Store in an air-tight container.

Take care, Stephanie

    Is it crazy that these are already in the oven! They sounded so good I could not wait.
