This roasted chickpeas recipe with Parmesan and Tabasco Sauce is salty and savory with a kick from tangy Tabasco Sauce to make a delicious snack or salad topper.


I almost always have a big salad for lunch, because I crave something I can take a serious bite out of. So I’m often looking for new and fun ways to elevate my bowl of greens with little nuggets that bring big flavor and great texture. Something salty and crunchy, like my 3-ingredient Parmesan chickpeas are always invited to the party. This time though, I kicked up the heat with a crispy Tabasco Sauce-spiked version, and I’ve gotta say, these are a new fave.

These spicy roasted chickpeas are a total game changer, and a delicious and easy way to elevate salads like my Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing, or add to your snacking game. They’re also great for entertaining nibbles thanks to the spicy saltiness that pairs so well with a little cocktail in one hand and a handful of chickpeas in the other.


What’s in These Roasted Chickpeas

  • Tabasco Original Red Sauce
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Chickpeas

How to Make Roasted Chickpeas

Garbanzo beans, chickpeas, whatever you call them, they’re delish, especially when tossed with spicy, tangy Tabasco Sauce and Parmesan, and roasted in the oven until crisp.

Drain, rinse, and dry. Preheat oven to 400°F. Drain and rinse garbanzo beans, then pat dry.

Season, toss, and roast. Place the beans on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or foil. Mix the canola oil and Tabasco together and drizzle over them. Stir to coat.

Roast and season again. Roast the beans for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and season with kosher salt and the Parmesan cheese.
